Meadowlark Christian School (MCS) Foundation
The MCS Foundation exists to foundationally support all operational aspects of the Community Christian Education Program. Legally, MCS Foundation Ltd. is a not-for-profit corporation, incorporated under the Companies Act in the province of Alberta.
The Foundation is the entity that works in partnership with Edmonton Public Schools to deliver the Community Christian Education Program (CCEP) which is the alternative program offered at Meadowlark Christian School.
The Foundation consists of a board of directors. Core directors are appointed through a board process. People with a heart for Christian Education, with suitable gifts and talents and an ability to serve, usually fill these positions. There is no requirement that they have children who attend the school.
Parent directors are elected by the parent body. A parent director is the legal parent or guardian of a current student. Nominations open in June. The election occurs at September’s “Meet the Teacher and MCS BBQ”.
