Governance

As a public charter school with the Wausau School District,  the Wausau Area Montessori Charter School is afforded opportunities to be unique. However, we are still bound by all Wisconsin Department of Instruction standards and assessment expectations. WAMCS’s charter agreement with the district allows us to modify items such as curriculum, daily schedules, the length of our school day, and other items.  In addition, WAMCS is required to have a Governance Council to help oversee and guide the school's operation. The Governance Council functions similar to a regular school board;  he council ensures financial, operational, and educational accountability of WAMCS. Below is a list of our current council members, their role and contact information.
