A formal charter was established for the purpose of governing administrative tasks such as financial statements, membership, and daily operation. In pursuit of the BEA's longer term goals a number of subcommittees were formed, such as the Program Development Committee, Vocational/Technology Committee, and Highland School District Foundation, 
each with a distinct set of objectives including: Parenting Plus, Projects, Mini-Grants and Educational Impact Grants, Very Important Principles (VIP), and Education Reports.
