COVID-19 update:

Our approach

Milestone is committed to the health and safety of our school community above all.

Accordingly, the Educators’ Cooperative of Milestone has started our 2020-21 school year with Personalized Remote Learning, where students are still able to meet face-to-face with their Advisors regularly, but are doing the majority of their learning from home. 

How we decide

Milestone is a membership-based not-for-profit organization, with rights reserved for the voting members of our community. Until we receive an affirmative vote from Milestone members (which include students, families/caregivers, staff, and community stakeholders who apply for membership) to open the school building, we will continue with Personalized Remote Learning.

Meetings and events

All Board of Directors meetings, Design Team meetings, and Committee meetings are open to the public, and may include Public Comment time in the agenda.

In addition, our Advisors are always happy to meet one-on-one to answer questions or chat!
