COMMUNITY REP ELECTIONS

Board Elections

The Board of Trustees will hold annual elections to elect Community Representatives to the Board. The elections will be conducted in such a way as to encourage broad representation from the parents/guardians of the CAC student body.


The election process will be clearly defined in a procedure developed by an Election Committee chaired by a Trustee appointed annually by the Trustee Committee. The Election Committee will report to the Trustee Committee for guidance and will consist of a PTO representative, the Head of School, and a representative from the audit firm under contract with the school.


The board may have up to four (4) elected members who are CAC parents/guardians and not employed by CAC. The representative must be a CAC parent/guardian throughout his/her term. CAC parents/guardians will be considered eligible so long as they are tuition payers.  Relatives of CAC employees are not eligible.


Elected representatives will be elected for two-year terms. (Where professional circumstances make a one year term unavoidable,  candidates will be accepted on that basis). Should an elected representative not fulfill his/her term, the School Board may choose to replace the member by: a) holding a special election; (b) appointing an individual with the next largest amount of votes; or c) appointing an individual to serve the remaining term.

CAC Annual Report

CAC is proud to present the 2017-18 Annual Report. It has been several years since CAC put together a comprehensive Annual Report, and we hope that this document provides for interested community members an overview of our successes from this school year and our plans for future growth and success. CAC is a robust, complex, and vibrant school. We've done what we can to capture that here. If you'd like to learn more, please come for a visit!

Inevitably, due to timelines and schedules, some of the information for 2017-18 was not available at the time of this digital publication. We will produce a hard copy with comprehensive end-of-year data for 2017-18 in the first months of SY2018-19. Hard copies will be available in the Welcome Center.

RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF CAC ID CARDHOLDERS

Campus Admittance & Guests:
• It is necessary for adults to use a valid ID card for admission to the campus and for CAC-sponsored events.

• Students in grades 6–12 must use their valid CAC ID card when accessing the campus. Failure to present an ID card will require the student to sign in during regular school days and prevent entry on weekends and between 5:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on weekdays. Elementary school students may only access campus during community hours if they are in the company of an adult. 
• The CAC campus is exclusively for school use from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday with the exception of the library, which is open to eligible community members from 3:00 p.m. until closing.  (Note: A parent must accompany elementary school students to the library.)
