Board of Trustees

Two Rivers Board of Trustees consists of leaders in education, accomplished professionals, and parents. Each non-staff board member contributes to the school's governance through one of four committees: 1) Academic Excellence, 2) Governance, 3) Finance, and 4) Development.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for:

  • determining the mission and purpose of the school and keeping the mission clearly in focus
  • selecting the executive director and supporting and reviewing the performance of the executive director
  • ensuring effective organizational planning
  • ensuring adequate resources and managing resources effectively
  • monitoring and strengthening the school’s programs and services
  • monitoring compliance with the school’s accountability measures
  • enhancing the school’s public standing
  • ensuring legal and ethical integrity and maintaining accountability
  • recruiting and orienting new Trustees and assessing Board performance

The Board is not involved with the day-to-day operations of the school. For example, the Board does not determine what is taught in math on Tuesdays or what is served for lunch on Fridays.
