St. Philip’s Episcopal is governed by a Board of Trustees that have been charged by the Vestry of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church with two primary responsibilities; to employ the Head of School and advance the mission, goals and objectives of the school. The Board is composed of up to 15 elected voting members each serving three-year terms and no less than one voting Vestry member who has been assigned to serve a one-year term on the Board. The Rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church is also a voting member.
All meetings of the Board are closed and attendance is limited to elected Board members, ex-officio members and appointed and invited administrative support staff. Meetings are held the second Thursday of the month. Parents who wish to address the Board may request to do so by submitting an email stating the issue of concern. Requests should be addressed to the President at least two (2) weeks prior to the meeting in order to allow for adequate information gathering and planning. The President will determine whether the individual may address the Board and the amount of meeting time allotted for the issue.
In its purpose to uphold and promote the mission of St. Philip’s Episcopal School, the Board of Trustees exercises its fiduciary responsibility in a strategic manner through:
- Approving and monitoring the school operating budget and financial initiatives
- Developing and executing a comprehensive plan for growth
- Formulating and reviewing policies that affect school life
Board members represent all students, present and future. Diversity and appropriate representation from parishioners, parents of current and former students, and members outside the St. Philip’s community is of value to the Board. To be considered for a position on the Board of Trustees, please send an email expressing interest to the President.
