As Board of Trustees, we hold the school, its mission and its future “in trust.” We use the school’s mission statement and strategic goals as guideposts for board decisions. Bylaws (last revised in 2016) facilitate our work by serving as a reference point.
Our primary work is future-focused and strategic, creating the school from which our grandchildren will benefit tomorrow. We delegate the day-to-day operations to the head of school, via an annual charge approved by the board. Our major responsibilities include setting the strategic direction; ensuring compliance with applicable laws and regulations; accounting for both the financial stability and the financial future of the institution; and selecting, supporting and evaluating the head of school.
A significant portion of the board’s work is done through its eight committees: Audit, Buildings and Grounds, Engagement, Executive, Finance, Head’s Evaluation and Support, Employee Retirement Plan and Trustees.
