The Montessori School Board of Directors
As a Michigan 403(b) non-profit organization, The Montessori School is governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is charged with the ultimate responsibility for financial, legal, and strategic planning and policy issues for The Montessori School. The board sets policy to be implemented by the administration and staff. Furthermore, the Board ensures the integrity of Montessori philosophy within the school. The Board currently consists of 9 members (parents and alumni parents of the school) along with 3 ex-officio members including the Head of School, Business Manager, and one teacher representative selected by the faculty. Board members serve three-year terms. Board terms are staggered and Board members are appointed at the Annual Meeting in May.
The Board holds regular meetings throughout the year. Minutes are on file in the TMS office and are available to members of the parent community upon request.
