About

Board of Trustees

The Greensboro Day School Board of Trustees is responsible for supporting the School’s Mission: to develop the intellectual, ethical and interpersonal foundations students need to become constructive contributors to the world. In that role, the Board: 

  • hires and works closely with the Head of School to cultivate and maintain positive relations with the school community and the broader Greensboro community;
  • recognizes that its work focuses on long-range, strategic planning, which includes setting annual goals that support the school’s overall strategic vision;
  • ensures that the School operates in compliance with appropriate laws and regulations;
  • reviews and maintains bylaws that are consistent with legal requirements;
  • establishes policies and plans that are consistent with the Mission; and
  • accepts accountability for the financial stability of the School. 
The Board consists of no more than twenty-nine members, and meets six times per year. Trustees serve on at least one of the Board’s committees, which currently include: Advancement, Audit, Building and Grounds, Committee on Trustees, Finance, Investment, and Executive. The Board is self-perpetuating, which is typical of most independent schools. This means that the Board identifies prospective new trustees via a process managed by the Committee on Trustees. The Board is committed to selecting Trustees who bring diverse talent and background, as well as offer a strong desire to serve the School.
