Charter Action Teams

The Action Teams are defined in the Charter.  The can be chaired by a Council member or non-Council member and are open to parents and teachers with an interest in that particular area of the school community.

This is a meaningful and important way to have a voice in the direction of the school and directly benefit your child's education.  Much work of the Council happens at the Action Team level, including event and budget management.  Action Team members are encouraged to problem-solve for existing issues AND brain-storm for new ways to benefit Chesnut's students.

The following Action Teams will meet regularly as designated by the Chesnut Council, with additional meetings as necessary, to ensure that the Charter and School Improvement Plan are implemented:
