Friends of Ingraham wants YOU
To join the board for the 2020-21 school year!
We're looking ahead to next year and are in search of board members! Joining FOI is a great way to stay involved and make a difference in your student’s high school experience. From highly active to mostly from home, we have roles that suit a variety of schedules.
As with just about everything else this year, the recruitment process has been slightly upended by the school closures. If you’re interested in any of the open positions and just want to chat about them, please feel free to reach out to us (by clicking the contact us below). We’re happy to answer any questions you might have, no commitment necessary. We’re also relying heavily on our community to spread the word through your various channels, as we are unable to connect with people personally. If you know of anyone who may be interested, feel free to share!

The Treasurer attends all board, grant, and general meetings. The time commitment varies considerably depending on the season, ranging from 4-20 hours per month.

Ninth-grade Rep: The Ninth Grade Rep acts as a liaison for the incoming Freshman families.

They are available to Ninth-grade families throughout the year, answering questions and bringing any concerns to the board. The average time commitment is 2-4 hours per month, with minimal duties outside of the monthly meetings. This position is perfect for someone who likes to engage personally with the IHS community and wants to learn more about Ingraham.
