Board of Directors
The Board of Directors, with the aid of the school Leadership Team, makes major policy decisions and sets the direction of the school. Each member serves on at least one subcommittee in addition to their place on the general Board. Directors asses the overall performance and financial health of the school, assuring that all resources are being used for the purposes for which they were intended. They formulate the school’s mission and ensure that it is upheld and advanced through their review of strategic plans, major commitments, and the annual budget. The Board of Directors also supports the school’s job acquisition and fundraising efforts through personal and professional connections throughout the region. They strive to enhance and promote the public image of the school throughout the Richmond community.
