Board of Education

The CCS school board is dedicated to creating policy that will guide CCS in its curriculum, community outreach, teaching pedagogy, and overall well-being and sustainability. The board meets monthly and meetings are open to members of CCS.

The CCS School Board of Education is a volunteer group. We need your assistance in filling vacant positions when they occur and encourage participation in our school in this very vital role. Thank you to all those who have served and our current members for serving the Lord in this capacity.
