The Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

Woodland Country Day School is governed by a dedicated Board of Trustees, whose primary duty is to define policy and provide overarching governance to the school. While the board does support the Headmaster as well as evaluate the current performance of the head, the board is also involved in long range planning for the future of the school, but does not govern day-to-day operations.

Some functions the Board performs include (but are not limited to):

  • Strategic planning for the future
  • Policy development
  • Hiring Headmaster and CFO
  • Approving annual budget
  • Overseeing financial diligence
  • Setting tuition and compensation
  • Supporting school in meeting its mission

The Board of Trustees meets monthly during the school year, except in March. Summer meetings are held to address timely issues, when warranted.  They donate hours of time, financial resources, and professional expertise to advance our mission.
