Board and Class Positions

Each family in the co-op is responsible for holding either a class or board position. In order for each class and the entire school to operate smoothly, it is important that each position's responsibilities are fulfilled.

 

Board members must be able to attend monthly board meetings, which are typically held the 2nd Wednesday of each month.  Board members are exempt from attending the mandatory cleaning nights :) These positions are most important to the operation of the school and need to be filled as soon as possible. For more information about board positions, please email us at registration@bensonhillcoop.org. Class positions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

 

Please refer to the "Meet Your Board" page for a description of board positions.  If you are interested in joining the board, please contact us at registration@bensonhillcoop.org.
