Governing Board and Budget

You can review our board meeting agendas, here.


Tucson Country Day School is governed by a five-member Governing Board that is responsible for maintaining academic, operational, and financial performance and transparency standards set by the Arizona Department of Education and the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools.

The Board is responsible for the policy decisions of our school, in partnership with the administration, staff, and parents of TCDS. The TCDS Governing Board meets once a month. Pursuant to A.R.S. 38-431.02, all public notices of TCDS Board meetings will be posted in the Governing Board section on this website (accessible via the link below) and are available in our administration office. TCDS Board members include TCDS Charter staff, TCDS parents, and community members.


Governing Board Members

Mr. Allan Stockellburg

Allan Stockellburg is a father of two beautiful children and husband to an even more beautiful wife. He is a Tucson-native with an educational background in Computer Science and Business Management. Allan currently serves as the Executive Director at Parent Aid Child Abuse Prevention Center, and chairs the Southern Arizona Fatherhood Collaborative and the Pima County Parenting Coalition. Allan is passionate about supporting families, because he truly believes that all children deserve a bright future.


Mr. Bruce Forche

Bruce is happily married to his wife of forty years, Christine. He has two sons and two grandchildren. His children and grandchildren have been a part of the TCDS family since 1988.

He has a Masters Degree as a Reading Specialist from the University of Massachusetts. Bruce has a passion for teaching children how to read. He has done this as a first and second grade teacher, teaching in his children’s classrooms, and most recently began the mentorship program for reading at Tucson Country Day School.

Bruce also worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 25 years before retiring in 2005. In his spare time, Bruce has dedicated himself to teaching reading. One of his most gratifying experiences was when he taught an illiterate person to read so that he could join the work force! He is most excited to be on the TCDS board because he has always believed in alternative ways to teach children and sees a bright future for the school. Bruce has been on the TCDS Governing Board since 2020.


Mrs. Renee Danielson

Renee Danielson is a Los Angeles native but has called Tucson home since 2006.  After receiving her BA in Psychology from UCLA, she did part-time work with children on the Autism spectrum, while working full-time at UCLA in the Housing and Hospitality Services department.  Eventually, her full-time job provided more opportunities so her Psychology work was put aside to focus on her professional growth in the Hospitality Industry.

After working in a hotel in Phoenix for a year, Renee moved to Tucson where she obtained a job at Raytheon in the Finance department.  Now working in the Contracts department, Renee has been with Raytheon since 2007.  Renee and her husband Clay have two children at TCDS and have been part of the TCDS community since 2014.  Renee has been a Board Member since 2018 and has enjoyed being witness to the progressive growth and focus on excellence the school has shown over the years.

In addition to service on the TCDS Board, Mr. Ruddick is a co-founder, instructor and current acting President of the Pima County Chapter of the Arizona Master Naturalist Association.  He is also a former Board member of the Arizona Association for Environmental Educators and he serves as an Executive Committee Member of the Rincon Group of the Sierra Club’s Grand Canyon Chapter.  Mr. Ruddick has two children that attend TCDS.  Isadora is in 7th grade and Cassius is entering the 3rd grade.  He and his family live on the east side of Tucson with their dog, Rocco.
