Chiaravalle is a not-for-profit educational institution governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board's responsibilities are fiduciary and strategic as it plans, develops and establishes policy and regularly assesses the performance of the school. With the guidance of the Head, the Board develops the strategic plan and goals for the future. The Board also takes a leadership role in fundraising and ensures the financial stability of the school. The Board entrusts all the daily operations of the school to the Head of School, who supervises and evaluates all programs and personnel.

In accordance with the school's Bylaws, the Board will be comprised of no fewer than twelve and no more than seventeen Trustees serving a minimum 3-year-term. Currently, there are twelve Board Trustees.

The Board meets approximately once a month. Board meetings are open to the school community. Please check the All-School Calendar for upcoming Board meetings and contact the Board President if you are interested in attending. Meeting minutes are recorded and made available to the community upon ratification by the Board.

Our Board needs a diversity of talented people who are prepared to volunteer sufficient time to learn about the school and trusteeship, and who arrive prepared to Board and committee meetings to consider and act upon issues that support the school's strategic plan. Please contact the President of the Board or Committee chair if you are interested in learning more about the work of the Board of Trustees or serving on a Board to committee.
