Robert Treat Academy Charter School is governed by a Board Trustees. This Board of Trustees has the same legal responsibility and authority as a Board of Education does in a school district. District Public Schools are governed by elected or appointed Board Members. Robert Treat's Trustee Board consists of nine members who each serve three year terms of office. Three of the Trustees are parents of Academy students. The remaining six members come from the local community.

Current Board of Trustee members come from the corporate world and from local and state government. They serve as volunteers and give generously of their time.

The agendas and minutes for regular Board Meetings will be available to the public upon request from the main office.

Board Members are charged with the direction of the district, and it's solvency. Making personnel, financial, curricular and other major decisions, they meet monthly throughout the year.

Below is a list of the current members of the Board of Trustees:

  • Robert R. Detore, Board President
  • Adrianne Davis, Vice President
  • Wilson Pichardo
