Our CCCS Board Members

William Hall, President, CCCS
I have worked in education for the past 46 years as teacher, counselor, principal and consultant. I am also a certified core adjunct faculty member at National University, working with aspiring teachers, administrators and counselors. I enjoy serving as a board member of Community Collaborative Charter School. Doing so affords me, as well as all board members, an opportunity to affect policies, procedures, and programs that have a direct, positive impact upon students.

Steve Fraire, Vice President, CCCS
I have been a career educator for over 38 years beginning in the bay area as a Principal, Assistant Principal, Director of Student Activities, SARB/Truancy Intervention Coordinator, Special Education and Juvenile Court School teacher and then with the San Diego County Office of Education as Coordinator of Child Welfare, Attendance, and School Safety. I currently serve on the California Department of Education School Attendance Review Board and Southern California Charter School Boards. I have been Past President of the Southern Section California Association Coordinators of Child Welfare and Attendance and the Marin County Juvenile Justice Commission. I have been awarded Marin County Educator of the Year and have received a State Assembly Resolution for Dedication to Education and Marin County Board of Supervisors Resolution of Commendation for Service to the Educational Community.

Susan Houle, Clerk, CCCS
I spent 31 incredible years in education serving students, parents, and teachers. I taught 7th grade basic education which includes English, reading, writing and social science. At the high school level I taught world history and for ten years I was an administrator. I retired a few years ago and now I’m able to go deep sea fishing more often and travel to go salmon and bass fishing.

Michael Humphrey, Board Member, CCCS
My career started in education as a result of a startling realization, while working in juvenile probation, that there must be a way to have a positive impact on children so they might avoid the pitfalls of what I saw them experiencing in this early career work. I developed a vision and a dream that things could be better. Elementary education was a bright path to that end. 45 years later after having been an elementary school teacher, a special educator, a public elementary and private junior high principal, a college professor in my field of psychology and now an active board member has given me a rare opportunity to see that dream realized. Board membership is an extension of that dream and I am so grateful that it continues to this day and hopefully will as long as I am able to help. I am convinced that we do noble work together.

David Franklin, Board Member, CCCS
I have been in education for 15 years as both a teacher and as an administrator. Currently, I am an elementary school principal in the San Francisco Bay Area. I also instruct and design online education courses for a variety of universities around the country.
