NEXT High School is governed by a 9 member board of directors. The school has been served to date by a 9 member "planning committee," which has functioned as the board of directors during the founding stage of the school.  Now that the school is in operation it's time to transition to a board elected by the parents and faculty, as directed by state law.

Board position terms are staggered such that either 4 or 5 (of the 9) directors are elected each year. The first board will be divided into two groups with 4 members elected for a 1 year term and 5 members elected for a 2 year erm. After the first year all new members will serve a 2 year term.
