Ascent Academies’ Board of Directors is a non-profit governing body made up of caring and experienced parents and community members organized to oversee the implementation of the school’s charter as approved by the Utah State Charter School Board.
The Board of Directors adheres to the philosophy that the ability of the school to carry out its mission and meet its goals depends heavily on the Board’s ability to provide strategic direction, select and support strong school leaders, and ensure the financial stability of the school.
The Board has established a Grievance Policy to address parent concerns and questions. Please follow this policy, which will lead you to contact the person directly involved, a Campus Director, or the Lead Director.
The Governing Board oversees the financial health of the school. All budgets are reviewed regularly and approved by the Governing Board. Budgets are published on the Utah Public Finance Website and monthly reports are available upon request to the Lead Director.
In accordance with Utah Code Ann. Section 53G-7-309, the governing board receives a budget report each month. This budget report includes the following information: (i) the amounts of all budget appropriations; (ii) the disbursements from the appropriations as of the date of the report; and (iii) the percentage of the disbursements as of the date of the report. The report is also available for public review. To receive a copy of a budget report(s), please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Budget reports will be made available within five (5) business days of the request.
The Board Audit Committee is comprised of the board president and the board financial coordinator.
