North Seattle French School was founded by a group of motivated parents who became the Board of Trustees. Today, our board includes alumni parents and community members as well as current parents.
Role of the Board of Trustees
The primary responsibility of the board is to be the guardian of the school’s mission. As such, the board establishes policies and plans that reinforce the school’s core values, vision, and strategic goals. The board is also the steward of the school’s resources and is accountable for its financial stability.
Our board members are all volunteers who are not compensated in any way. We are grateful for the time, energy, and dedication they have given over the years and continue to give to allow our school to grow and thrive!
The Board comprises a General Board, an Executive Committee, and an Advisory Board, including the head of school (ex-officio). All board members have voting rights, save advisory members and the head of school. Members are elected to one-year terms, and nominations for new members are open to the entire school population and general community in the spring. General Board meetings are held once a month and are open to the school community.
