ACE Leadership Governing Board
ACE Leadership benefits from a very high functioning board with executive-level experience in their own organizations. They represent a cross-section of highly valuable professional knowledge (legal, financial, strategic planning, education, and industry relations) that will ensure the school is well governed. All members have completed board training through the New Mexico Public Education Department and the New Mexico Coalition for Charter Schools.
Below are the current board members:
