Board of Trustees

Mission

To ensure the vitality and values of The Montessori Academy’s institutional mission for present and future generations of students. We do this by fulfilling our fiduciary and governance responsibilities for the well-being of The Montessori Academy at Edison Lakes.

About the Board

A volunteer Board of Trustees governs The Montessori Academy at Edison Lakes. As a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, the collective obligation of the Board is to uphold the mission. The Board’s primary functions are to set general policies, finance the school, and plan for its future. All implementation, overseeing of day-to-day operations, personnel matters, and relationships with consituents are the responsibility of the Head of School’s administrative team. The Board relies upon the administration to hear and adjudicate any grievances according to the policies found in the employee and family manuals.

Board meetings are open and all are welcome to attend. The time and date will be posted on the website and in the weekly memo. If there is a topic you would like the Board to discuss, please contact us in advance of the meeting and ask to be added to the agenda. Minutes and agendas of each Board meeting are available in the school library and on our website for review.
