SUIMA Seeking School Board Candidates

SOUTHERN UTE INDIAN MONTESSORI ACADEMY

Open until filled – The Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy is seeking five (5) interested candidates to sit on their school board. Interested persons must be over the age of 18.

Are you interested in helping shape the future?  What about serving children and your community?  The Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy is seeking members for its school board.  Being on a school board can be a rewarding experience when you realize you are helping ensure a good education for the tribal member youth in our community.  If you are interested in working with a team of like-minded individuals who wish to bring excellence to academics, then being a SUIMA School Board member is for you.

With Resolution 2020-142, signed on October 13, 2020, the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy has been given permission to form their own School Board Separate from Tribal Council.

With the majority of the Board being tribal members, the School Board will uphold SUIMA’s mission as it provides a strong educational foundation to preserve and share the Southern Ute Indian culture and language within a Montessori environment. The purpose of the SUIMA School Board is to work with the Tribal Council to ensure that SUIMA has sufficient resources; helps oversee SUIMA’s operations and administration; and regularly updates the Tribal Council.

Interested parties may submit a letter of  interest by July 15, 2022 to the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy, PO Box 737 #52, Ignacio, CO 81137; or by bringing the letter of interest to the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy office; or by emailing the letter of interest  to the SUIMA Principal at mjowens@southernute-nsn.gov.
