School on the Green Board of Directors

Since 1972, School on the Green has been managed by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of parents of enrolled students as well as a percentage of non-parents. The board works together to ensure that the school remains compliant with state regulations and school policies, as well as performs functions that significantly enhance the services provided to students and parents.

Each April, the Governance committee will nominate candidates for the upcoming Board of Directors. Parents and other members of the community are encouraged to join the board for the upcoming school year. The final vote takes place at the annual Board of Directors meeting in May. It is not a requirement, nor is it necessary, to have held a previous board seat in order to be considered for any position on the board.  The monthly responsibilities for each position are clearly defined in a written manual, and retired board members are available for questions.  Anyone interested in becoming a board member should contact the school.
