Board of Directors

The e3 Civic High Founding Board is dedicated to the mission of supporting urban students in their preparation for success in college, career and civic engagement.  Members are drawn to serve on the founding board because of their significant experience , expertise, and passion in these sane three areas and because of their continued commitment to help all students thrive in the public school system.


A current member also serves on the Board of Trustees of the San Diego Public Library Foundation, thus laying a firm foundation for the collaboration between the charter high school and the New San Diego Central Library. The board of e3 Civic High currently has eight members including several business community members, four representatives from local colleges/universities and one representative from the San Diego Unified School District. A total of eleven members can participate on the governing board.
