When Arco Iris was founded, a fundraising committee was created under the purview of the Board. As the school evolved, so did the committee and is now currently known as the PTO. At a recent Board meeting, the Arco Iris Governance Documents and By-Laws were updated. Upon review of these documents, it was determined that the PTO in its current form is not consistent with the Board’s policies regarding committees. The PTO and Board decided that this would be an excellent time to evaluate if it was a best practice for the PTO to remain a Board committee. The PTO Committee Workgroup was created, consisting of two parents, two Board members, and the principal, to evaluate the available options and make a recommendation to the Board.
On July 8th, 2015 at 6:30pm, the PTO Committee Workgroup will be meeting at Arco Iris to discuss the various options under consideration. This meeting will include a portion for community dialogue and we welcome parents, staff, and the community to come and provide input. Agenda to follow.
