As a public charter school, our leadership structure varies slightly from a traditional ISD. We have a Chief Executive Officer instead of a superintendent, and we have an appointed Board of Directors instead of an elected school board. Our Central Management Offices (CMO), located in the Design District of Dallas, oversee the broad business functions of the network, such as Human Resources, Accounting and Finance, IT, Development and Academic Coordination, while each of our campuses has its own set of leaders. All entities work together to ensure every scholar is receiving a top level education. See our leadership below.
The Board of Directors consists of community leaders who have a passion for education. Our Board members represent all areas of the metroplex and a variety of professions, but all are strong advocates for educational choice. Through their guidance and innovation, Uplift Education has grown to the largest public charter network in D/FW. Click to view our Board of Directors.
