Summit Middle School is an independent non-profit educational corporation, governed by a Board of Directors, which is elected by Summit families, faculty and staff.  The School operates under a charter from the Boulder Valley School District.  Except where Summit’s charter contract gives authority to the Boulder Valley School District, all policies and governance of Summit are the responsibilities of the Summit Board.

The Board is made up of nine voting members and one non-voting member, the Principal.  It is the responsibility of the Committee on Trustees to recommend a slate of candidates to the Board of Directors for approval for annual elections.  Community members interested in serving on the Board should contact the Chair.

Notice of meetings of the Board adheres to the Colorado Open Meetings Law.  Notice of no less than 24 hours will be given prior to any board meeting.  Meeting dates will be announced in the Summit Newsletter and are posted on the school calendar on the Summit website.  Meeting agendas are posted 24 hours prior to the meeting on the Summit website and on the bulletin board outside the office.  

Summit relies on open communication between parents, faculty, staff and board.  For more information about communicating with the board, contact Lisa Chase, Board Chair, at or any member of the board directly.
