HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Charter School Commission is seeking applicants who may be interested in taking on a board member position for a charter school on Kauai.

The commission says Kanuikapono Public Charter School was reconstituted after failing to address concerns expressed by the state.

In May,  the commission sent the school's purported board a notice of concern because they were out of compliance with state law with respect to their governing board and other complaints, the commission said.

"The board responded by saying they disagreed with compliance breaches but failed to state why and also failed to submit a satisfactory action plan to the Commission," the state said in a news release.

As a result, the commission voted unanimously to reconstitute the board and they are now seeking interested applicants.

"Board members are responsible for ensuring the quality of the school's educational, financial, and organizational plans, they must be competent stewards of public funds, and must ensure the school fulfills its public obligations and all terms of its Charter Contract," the commission said.

The deadline to apply is August 2.
