Strategic Planning Meeting is Canceled
The strategic planning meeting that was originally scheduled for Saturday, March 8th has been postponed until a later date.
We have two seats on the Xavier Charter School Board that will open this June. We would like to invite anyone that is interested to apply. Serving as a school board member is one of the most important responsibilities a stakeholder can undertake. This is a great opportunity for someone, working alongside fellow Board members, to help establish goals which will further the vision at Xavier.
Applications will be accepted until March 21st, and elections will be held in May. Any questions should be directed to Board Chair Debbi Burr at email@example.com.
Please see the Board application and Board Policy 1220 that delineates Board candidate qualifications.

Addition to Policy 8300: Emergency & Disaster Preparedness
Firearms on Campus
Recognizing that Xavier Charter School is located in a rural setting and that response time from local emergency first responders, including law enforcement personnel, may be delayed due to the location of the school the Board adopts this policy to address concerns about effective and timely response to emergency situations at the school, including invasion of the school by an armed outsider, hostage situations, students who are armed and posing a direct threat of physical harm to themselves or others, and similar circumstances.
Pursuant to its authority under Idaho Code 18-3302D, the Board may, from time to time, authorize specific individuals to possess certain firearms on school property, at school-sponsored or school-sanctioned events, and at Board meetings. Specifically authorized individuals shall be approved by separate action of the Board. No individual may possess a firearm on campus prior to Board approval except in circumstances provided under Idaho law.
Only those individuals who have obtained and maintain a current enhanced license, in accordance with Idaho state law, to carry a concealed firearm within the State of Idaho are eligible to be authorized to possess a firearm on school property. When the firearm is on campus, the authorized individual must be in possession of the firearm at all times, concealed on his or her person, so as to minimize disruption of the learning process and to decrease the response time to an emergency situation.
Any individual authorized by the Board to possess a firearm on school property may be provided additional training in crisis intervention, management of hostage situations, and other training as the Board or Head of Schools may determine necessary or appropriate. If the Board determines that additional training is necessary or desired, the cost of such training shall be paid by the District only if the individual is an employee of the District.
