The Governing Council would like to extend a special invitation to each of you to attend your Public Academy for Performing Arts council meetings. Our regular meeting schedule is:
Name: PAPA Governing Council
Date: Last Tuesday of Every Month
Time: 3:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Location: Portable 2, PAPA Campus
As public officials, council members are representatives of the people of the school. Our decisions are based on the needs of all the people and the overall educational interests of our students. Problems are not decided on the basis of geographic divisions, personal interests, special interest groups, political expediency, or bias or prejudice for or against individuals or groups. As Governing Council members, we are charged with seeing that the school is well-managed, tax dollars are wisely spent, and the investment and interests of the public are protected. Council members are obligated to maintain fair and equitable employment practices for all employees in keeping with local, state and federal law, to seek their professional advice and judgment, to support and provide for their needs, and to promote good relationships and morale among the staff. Council members have an obligation to support a structure that provides valuable learning experiences for all students, strives to meet the unique and separate needs of individuals, and recognizes and protects the rights and responsibilities of these young citizens.
Each of you is integral in ensuring the Governing Council achieves these goals. Please accept this as a standing invitation to attend and contribute to our meetings.
We will see you there!
Mark A. Padilla
President, PAPA Governing Council
