Governing Board

Littleton Preparatory Governing Board

The role of the Littleton Prep Governing Board is to uphold the mission, vision, and policies of the school as well as oversight of financial matters. The Governing Board is comprised of 5 parent volunteers who serve the school in 3 year terms. They generally hold their regular meetings on the third Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm at the school. Parents are invited to attend the meetings and are welcome to request agenda items for these meetings or to participate in the public comment agenda item of any meeting. Public comment issues will be addressed by the next meeting. For more information about the roles and responsibilities of the Governing Board, please download Governing Board By-Laws.
