Board of Trustees

The Park School Board of Trustees is a self-perpetuating governing body that employs the head of school, who is in turn responsible for all school operations. The Board of Trustees provides fiduciary oversight for the School, consults on matters of policy, helps set Park’s strategic direction, and helps lead both annual and capital fundraising efforts. Trustees can serve three 3-year terms. In addition to monthly board meetings, trustees also serve on working committees focused on various areas of school operations, often leading these efforts.
