RMAE Board of Directors

The Board of Directors (BOD) is the policy setting and governing entity of the school. We are authorized or “chartered” by Jefferson County to operate this school. RMAE must meet State and County minimum standards. Charter schools are allowed autonomy to choose a core curriculum and campus culture in exchange for assuming financial responsibility for the school campus facilities.

We have one employee, the school Director, who is responsible for the staffing and day-to-day management of the school.

The Board meets at least six times per year, covering topics such as finance and budget, achieving academic standards, Director’s goals and accountability, strategic planning, bylaws and handbooks, BOD evaluation, election of future BOD members, and other pertinent matters.

It is with regret to inform the RMAE community, teachers, and staff of the resignation of Kyle Stults from his responsibilities as as President and member of the RMAE Board of Directors.  His resignation will be officially accepted at the next regular meeting of the BoD on May 11. Once officially accepted, his letter of resignation will be made available.

At the May meeting a current member of the BoD will be appointed and will serve as President until the July meeting. Until then the Vice President, Amy Broxterman, will serve as Acting President. The vacancy created by Kyle’s resignation will not be filled until the elections.  Kyle’s seat had already been announced at last night’s meeting as one of the three seats open for May election.

Kyle has served this community and school with steadfast dedication and commitment to do what was best to meet the mission of RMAE, the educational interests of the students, and the long term well-being of the school. He is to be commended for his steadfastness to serve under some extraordinarily difficult circumstances these past seven months.

Thank you, Kyle.
