Board of Directors
Overview of Being a Board Member
The Board of the Montessori Children’s School is a volunteer organization of parents, directors/directresses, Head of School, alumni parents, and community members. Our Board model supports the Head of School who, in turn, supports the children, their families, and the staff.
The Board does not involve itself in the day-to-day running of the school. Rather, it sets and reviews school policies, oversees the budget and sets fiscal policy, raises funds for the school through our annual auction, participates on important committees, and identifies ways to make the school better.
Board members serve for a two-year term. At the Annual Board of Directors Meeting, new Board members are elected to replace those whose terms have expired. The new Board members should be committed to the well-being of the school and work to promote all policies and procedures as well as the long-term goals of the school.
The Board meets monthly throughout the year. Committees may meet more often.
Board members follow the organization’s bylaws, policies and board resolutions. Each member signs an annual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and updates it during the year, if necessary, as well as discloses potential conflicts before meetings and actual conflicts during meetings. Board members maintain confidentiality about all internal matters of the organization.
