San Jose Schools Governing Board

The San Jose Schools Governing Board is comprised of community supporters, educators, and parents committed to bringing tuition-free public charter schools to Duval County and the State of Florida.

The Board is responsible for legal and financial obligations, establishing policy consistent with the Schools' mission, and ensuring that the programs and operations of the School are faithful to the terms of the charter.

We are a self-governed school that does not employ a charter management company, nor an education service provider, nor a charter management organization.
