Leadership

Leadership

Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School is overseen by an administrative team with decades of professional education experience. However, all of these administrators are committed to using their experience to reshape public education through the charter school model. This combination of veteran savvy and commitment to innovation is one of the many qualities that make the school unique.

The school’s charter is held by the Midland Borough School District. Lincoln Park is overseen by a board of directors and a chief executive officer, and its day-to-day leadership is provided by its principal and Dean of Academics. Each arts department at the school has its own director, and these six individuals also serve as part of the senior leadership of the school.

The Board of Directors normally meets on the second Tuesday of each month. There is a Work Session that begins at 5:30 p.m. The regular board meeting follows at 6:00 p.m. in the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center’s third-floor conference room.
