Edwina McIntyre - Board President

As representatives of the community, joined in a positive, cooperative effort with parents, students and staff, it is the mission of the Par Excellence Academy Board to determine the direction of the school, set policies, define goals and work towards providing the highest quality resources that will ensure that every student receives the very best education possible and is prepared for the future as a productive and responsible citizen.
The Board is a policy-making body that represents Par Excellence Academy and works in conjunction with the State of Ohio and district residents on all matters and decisions regarding public education for the school. No individual member has the independent authority to speak for the board.
Board meetings are open to the public and citizens are encouraged to attend. Board meetings are held in the Conference Room at Par Excellence Academy, 1350 Granville Rd, Newark OH, at 5:30pm on the second Thursday of every month. Also, the Board occasionally conducts special meetings when school matters need immediate attention.
Copies of the Board’s agenda are available upon request from the Par Excellence Academy Administration and/or the Board Treasurer. The agendas contain the following:
Approved Board minutes also are available upon request.
The Board welcomes citizens’ participation at all meetings. The begining of all board meetings are open to the public. Those who wish to address the Board will be asked to stand and begin by identifying themselves to the Board with their name and address.
Comments are limited to 5 minutes, as time permits. The Board encourages residents to share issues that affect Par Excellence Academy as a whole. Board meetings are not the appropriate setting to discuss individual or building-level concerns, or for personnel issues. Also, out of respect to students and staff, the Board does not allow personal attacks. Those who violate the policy will be asked to step down immediately.
Board meetings are held every second Tuesday of each month at 5:30pm. The 2019 dates are as follows:

Ohio law permits board members to hold private discussions during a meeting. Executive sessions allow members to discuss personnel matters, property purchases, possible legal action, employment negotiations, security arrangements and items the law says must be kept confidential. Because Ohio law says all votes must be cast in public, executive sessions are for discussion purposes only.
