LCS School Board Nominations and Election
Dear LCS Parents,
It is time to begin planning for our next year at Lincoln Charter, which means school board nominations and election. The selection process for new board members will soon begin and we need you! Please consider serving as a leader on the school board.
Each year we strive to present a slate of people who possess various talents and skills that compliment each other to create a dynamic board of directors. We need people with insight and ideas to ensure steady progress into the future by keeping with Lincoln Charter’s vision and mission. This is a continuous process that requires evaluation and implementation of strategies by its leaders, faculty and administrators.
Please consider those willing to give of their time and talents to keep LCS a sought after place for children to receive an outstanding education.
School Board elections will be held in May via electronic format.
Below are some guidelines for your consideration for nominating prospective members for our Board of Directors. The LCS website gives an in-depth description of Board operational goals, legal status, powers and responsibilities, authority, liability and other qualifications of board members.
ATTRIBUTES of an EXCELLENT BOARD MEMBER
No personal agenda: Someone with a flexible mind-set, who is respectful of others while demonstrating mature, responsible, and logical reasoning skills, creates an atmosphere that facilitates progress for all children. A board member represents all 2000+ students. He/she does not represent an individual student, class, school division, campus or special interest. Each board member must adhere to a strict conflict of interest policy.
Team Player: Board members must work well with others toward achieving a common goal. Understanding that LCS is multiple campuses, but one school with one spirit is critical. Concurrently, board members need to understand that each campus has somewhat different needs and that decisions must be made on the basis of what is best for the school as a whole.
Leadership Qualities: A board member should be a community leader, and/or someone who volunteers their time to benefit their local church, neighborhood, charity or non-profit organization.
Time Commitment: Members are charged with a serious responsibility. They are not merely a hierarchical group who meets once per month to vote on a line-item agenda. Board members are expected to be at all monthly meetings which last from 1-2 hours and meet every 4th Monday of the month.
Willing Volunteer: Members are expected to contribute several hours per month outside of the regularly scheduled meeting toward the benefit of LCS. This includes committee leadership or other school wide volunteer opportunities. Our directors should be the most dedicated and participating members of the LCS family, leading by example.
Please consider a nomination for a Lincoln Charter Board member, or serving on a committee. It is a rewarding experience!
The LCS School Board nominating committee is now accepting nominations for the two parent elected positions on the 2017-2018 School Board. If you would like to nominate someone or if you would like to self nominate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact the school board via email with any questions you may have at email@example.com

7th Inning Stretch
We would like to take this opportunity to update everyone on Monday’s very successful 7th Inning Stretch Day. With the support of our students, staff, parents and community, we were able to raise over $4,000 for the North Carolina Chapter of the ALS Association in Raleigh. The overall goal was to raise awareness and provide help and support for local families affected by ALS.
In addition to educating our students and raising awareness about a fatal disease, here are some of the other highlights of the day:
The day and its successes could not have happened without the support of our families and the hard work of our many volunteers.
