Woodland Polytechnic Academy, a recently approved charter high school focused on providing students with skills for both college and career, has announced its board of directors.
The board includes Stephen Marks Jr., president and executive director; Greg Driver, vice president; Gerry Quinlan, chairman; Linda Henigan, secretary; Jennifer Zane, treasurer; and Rick Harrison, board member.
“Every board member has a strong tie to Woodland and each member is passionate about ensuring our community’s children have the opportunity to be successful in school and in life,” Marks said in a news release. “Woodland Poly will give our children a personalized roadmap to achieving their fullest potential — whether that is through higher education or directly to the world of work.”
WPA is a tuition-free, independent California public charter school scheduled to open in fall 2011, serving grades 9-11, and expansion plans to serve grades 9-12 in 2012. WPA has a zero-tolerance policy for gangs and drugs. Parents and students will sign a contract outlining each student’s expected behavior, and each student will have a personalized learning plan.
The school is now enrolling freshmen, sophomores and juniors for the 2011-12 school year. Enrollment applications are available on the school’s website, www.woodlandpoly.org.
