The FAME board will be meeting this Saturday at 10:00 AM.  We encourage parents and faculty to come to the meeting.

On the agenda is a vote to get rid of term limits for FAME board members.
What you need to know about term limits and the FAME board:
Board members are appointed for up to 6 year terms, with revolving start and end years.  This allows the board to always have a mixture of board members who have been there for a number of years with board members who have just begun their term.
Term limits were first introduced for FAME board members only 2 years ago, as part of a comprehensive restructuring of the FAME board and rewriting of the By-laws.  The governance committee of the FAME board put a great deal of research and work into rewriting the by-laws, and their research was based on best practices in the world of boards today.
Some members of the FAME board are pushing to revoke those term limits for board members.
As it stands now, the board is self-electing, and without term limits, the only way to remove a board member would be for them to voluntarily quite or have 2/3 of the board vote them off.
Please come out to the meeting this Saturday, Dec.17 at 10am Milan campus.

Orleans Parish School Board Candidate Info Session

Nov 012016
 
In addition to selecting a new president this November, there are a lot of other races going on – like the race to fill all seven Orleans Parish School Board positions (OPSB).  OPSB is responsible for the overall policies within the school district, and for budget matters.  The PTO has invited all of the candidates to visit Audubon next Wednesday, November 2 to talk a little bit about their platform, and to answer questions. Note that we currently have candidates from District 4 (Leslie Ellison), District 5 (David Alvarez), and District 6 (Ben Kleban) committed to joining us, but there will likely be others as well.
The choices of the OPSB can have a profound impact on the educational environment at Audubon Charter School – we hope you can come and learn more about the candidates who are vying to make those choices.  We will make every effort to keep the forum to one hour. Please make plans to attend, as we would like to show the candidates how committed and active we are in the Audubon PTO.
When:  Wednesday, November 2, 5:30pm
Where:  Broadway Campus Cafeteria
Don’t know which school board district you’re in?  Click here:  https://voterportal.sos.la.gov/  We will post additional information on the race (including School Board District Maps) in the coming days.
