Terri Burroughs
Terri Burroughs
  • Member, Board of Directors
  • Before I retired as a Yuba County Office of Education administrator, I was involved with CORE from the initial charter through Camptonville School District. Over the years I have seen the many successes of CORE students, teachers, parents and administrators and the development of resource centers. CORE has been a collaborative partner in the community working with districts and other charter schools to provide educational choice.   The personalized learning approach offers options and resources to CORE students. As a credentialed teacher K-12 and special education, I am always interested in innovation and student achievement. I am excited to be a community member on the CORE Board of Directors.

 

Heidi Lecair
  • Member, Board of Directors
  • I am a homeschool graduate currently homeschooling my two children through CORE Charter School. Our family has been enrolled with the school since 2015, and our experience over the past few years has been only positive. CORE Charter School's educational model surrounds both students and parents with the resources and support necessary to thrive in both academics and personal interests. I wholeheartedly believe that this personalized approach to schooling encourages the wonderful uniqueness of each child and creates well-rounded individuals with the potential to both succeed and serve the communities they live in for years to come. I am honored to serve as a parent member on this school board and look forward to supporting the students, parents, and faculty of this wonderful school.
