Randolph School

Board of Trustees

Independent Governance

As an independent school, Randolph is governed by a Board of Trustees whose members serve the School on a voluntary basis. The Board is responsible for the Head of School, and its primary work is long-term and strategic. The Head of School, in partnership with School administration, is responsible for the day-to-day operation and management.

NAIS, the National Association of Independent Schools, of which Randolph is a member, published these Principles of Good Practice for a school’s Board of Trustees.

Main Responsibilities:

  • Assuring the relevance and fulfillment of the School’s mission
  • Hiring, supporting, and evaluating the Head of School
  • Securing the financial sustainability of the School

Board Members also lead and serve on five standing committees: Committee on Trustees, Finance, Operations, Strategic Planning, and Development.
