The Dailey Charter School is governed by Fresno Innovative Charter Schools, Inc. (FICS), a 501c3 non-profit cooperation.  The Board consists of seven members with the skills and experiences that benefit the development of Dailey Elementary Charter School.

The FICS Board’s representatives bring significant experience that is critical to the operation of a charter school.  FICS Board meetings are held regularly and are open to the public. 

The Board of Directors acts as the governing body of the public benefit nonprofit corporation and the school. The Board of Directors are set up as follows; (1) the current Superintendent of FUSD or his designee from the FUSD District Office; and (2) two Representatives from the FUSD School Board.  These representatives are active FUSD members at the time of their  appointment to the Board of Trustees and will be re-appointed by the FUSD Board. The four additional Board members are representatives from the community.  Two of these representatives have a school-age child, preferably attending or having a desire to attend a  school with an International Baccalaureate  curriculum.

The Board of Directors directs the school administration and staff in the daily operations of the school, and is solely responsible for all aspects of budgeting, accounting, payroll, purchasing, and debts or obligations incurred. The board usually meets the second Tuesday of each month.
