What is MIT?
Madrona Integrated Team (MIT) is a non-profit, charitable corporation whose purpose is to support and enhance the experience of Madrona School students by sponsoring educational and related family programs, as well as enrichment activities for our students. It is similar to a PTA, but operates as its own non-profit and is not affiliated with the PTA. There is no fee to join; all Madrona students, staff, teachers and parents are automatically members. MIT is run by an elected volunteer board of directors and is responsible for raising money for use in the classrooms and throughout school as well as for creating a community through events.

There are three MIT Board positions that are up for election this year. Each position is for a two-year term. All positions have the option for two people to co-chair, and newly elected board members will have assistance while transitioning to their new roles.
Elections for Parent Chair, Recorder and Vice Treasurer are held on even years and elections for Treasurer and Vice Chair are held on off years. Each office below is slated for a two-year term beginning September 2022 and ending September 2024.
Chair: The Parent Chair is the Chief Executive Officer of MIT (a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation). This position supervises all of the assets, business and affairs of MIT.
