On January 1, 2020 Alliance transitioned to a new, simplified governance structure in order to comply with California’s new state law on charter oversight SB 126 and to best meet the needs of scholars, staff, families, and communities. The new Alliance Governing Board of Directors will offer expertise in facilities, finance, legal, and education. Their knowledge will strengthen the strategic direction, academic success, sustainability, and accountability of Alliance. The Governing Board will have strong ties to stakeholders at each school site through the School Site Advisory Council (SSAC). The council provides a platform for peer-elected scholars, teachers, staff members, families, and community members to participate in decision-making at their school with their principal, and will maintain a feedback loop with the Governing Board through a representative process.
