A 17-member board governs and operates the school. The Board was created through a unique partnership between the Oklahoma City Public Schools and Oklahoma City Quality Schools, a non-profit organization. Six members were appointed by Oklahoma City Public Schools and six by Oklahoma City Quality Schools. The initial members selected and appointed three additional board members. Additionally, the University of Oklahoma, the charter sponsor, appointed two non-voting directors to serve on the board. The JRCES board is responsible for all aspects of planning, governance and operation of the school.

Board member terms last three years and expire June 30. Terms are unlimited.
