ABI Board of Directors

ABI consists of a board of directors, an executive director and support staff, and parent representatives from each of our schools. The ABI Board has many responsibilities, including ensuring our schools honor and effectively implement their charters, managing our facilities, and supporting our school leaders and teachers in all aspects of their work. Perhaps the ABI Board's greatest responsibility is ensuring that our schools operate with fiscal integrity and transparency. To do so, the Board has many accountability systems in place. Each year the Board passes budgets for ABI and our respective schools and then works to ensure that the budgets are effectively managed. For summaries of our budgets, see ABI Schools Budgets. For additional information about our budgets and/or our oversight process, please contact Will McKenna
