Governing Council

Horizon Academy West (HAW) is governed by a five member governing council. The voting members are comprised of parents of students, and other community stakeholders. The non-voting members include our Director, Principal, Family and Community Engagement Coordinator and a Teacher. The Governing Council is the Independent School Board for Horizon Academy West and thus, provides oversight in matters of policy and budgetary matters.

We are honored to be one of the first charter schools to be authorized by the New Mexico Public Education Commission (NMPEC). In order to become authorized by the NMPEC, our council was also required to become certified as a board of finance.

Our governing council is enormously proud of the successes HAW has had. We are pleased to team up with the Administration, faculty, staff, and our parents to continue that success into the future. We welcome involvement by the entire school community, so please come to our meetings, see what is going on at the school behind the scenes, sign-up for public forum and give us your opinions and suggestions!
