TIA Board President and local attorney Dennis Malone defined the largest improvement that TIA could offer to potential students as "choice."

"We have a personal education plan that starts with the parent, the teachers and the student," Malone said in a phone call Friday."That plan will be developed between the parent, teachers and student."
In addition to Malone, other board members include real estate broker Ed Trommeter as vice president and businesswoman and parent Tami Felthager as secretary.
Malone went on to define each student's personal education plan as a sort of contract."That contract will need to be met.We're asking each parent, 'what do you want for your kid?' We're asking each kid, 'what do you want out of your education?'" Malone said."And that will become what we're trying to do: some will want a vocational path, some will want an academic path, and we will then try to give the best possible education we can (according to those parameters)."
Malone also said that TIA would be offering two-to-four foreign language classes and advanced math classes offered sooner than typical in other area public schools."We believe we can properly teach some math at an earlier age," he said."We're going to have a different curriculum...these kids will be able to accelerate at their own pace."
Malone explained the students' self-directed pacing as, "If that student excels halfway through the year and finishes math, he will go right into the next year's math.We will not wait (till the next year) to start him."
Preparing students for a competitive global economy was said by Malone to be the overarching aim of TIA."We are trying to prepare people for what we think is what they're going to need to compete in a global world," he said.
Malone stated Friday that he saw a charter school as a positive addition to Trinidad."To have a charter school in addition to a regular school district is an enhancement to our community," he said.
