Academic Policy Committee


The Rilke Schule German School of Arts & Sciences has an Academic Policy Committee  (“APC”), which is the primary governing body designated to oversee and supervise many aspects of the Charter School.

If you have an item you would like to see brought up at an APC meeting, please send a request any APC member via email, phone, or by putting a note in the ‘APC’ mailbox at school. If you have accompanying information please include it as an attachment. The more time ahead of the meeting you send in the information, the better the chances the board will have had time to think about and study your request and thus be prepared and informed for the meeting. The APC thanks you for taking an active role in the future of your school.

The APC Regular monthly meetings are held at 6:00 PM at school. The agenda will be posted a reasonable time ahead of the meetings.  The meetings are open to the public and everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.

There are links to Meeting Minutes and Agendas under the Academic Policy Committee Sub-Menu.


Can be found on our Rilke Schule Master Calendar.

The APC will be holding its annual parent/community elections in February. Please look in School News section of this website for details.  If anyone is interested in serving on the APC next year please contact us at
