Our Governing Board

Tallahassee Classical School’s Governing Board plays an essential role in the school’s success through its oversight of the school’s leadership. The board is responsible for the governance of the school. Each director accepts his or her responsibility for the academic performance of the students and the sustainability of the school. The Board is guided by a set of bylaws that define how the Board operates. It acts to ensure compliance with Florida’s Charter School Law, federal law, and the terms of the Charter as agreed upon in the charter contract.
