June Parent Teacher Organization Elections

As a non-profit corporation, Friends of Albert Einstein Academies maintains a 15-member Board of Directors that oversees the operations of our organization. We hold elections every June to fill open positions and are looking for people interested in fulfilling this role. Board members are responsible for the management of a $200,000+ budget and typically fill a leadership role in the Parent Teacher Organization. They help to coordinate efforts between other parents, teachers, and the school’s administration to improve the quality of our children’s education. If you are interested in running for the board for the 2018-19 school year, please click here to fill out a nomination form. Please contact me at president@foaea.org with any questions.
