Committees

We have organized into committees designed to address our strategic needs and staffed with the appropriately skilled Trustees: 
  1. EXECUTIVE
    Description: This committee may exercise all the powers of the Board of Trustees during the interim between meetings in accordance with the bylaws. They may only act between meeting if permission has been delegated by the board.  The executive committee members serve as advisors to the chair. They also appoint or approve the appointment of all committee members.
  2. FINANCE
    Description: Consisting of no less than four (4) trustees, one of which must be the Treasurer and often the chair, the Finance committee also includes the principle business officer of the school.  This committee typically meets one week in advance of any regular board meeting.  This committee, in conjunction with the Head of School and the principle business officer of the school, is responsible for reporting on the overall management and supervision of the financial affairs of the school, including fundraising.  This committee oversees the audit, the preparation of the 990, and the annual school budget.
  3. HEAD SUPPORT & EVALUATION
    Description: This committee is a special committee of the board established to work with the Head of School in establishing annual goals and to facilitate regular meetings to support the Head of School in achieving the goals, as well as providing a forum for honest and candid discussions around any opportunities or challenges through the year.
