Policy on Joining a SAES Board Committee

The SAES Board of Trustees performs much of its operational work within a committee structure. Each committee is chaired by a Board member and is comprised of Board members, school administrators, parents/past parents and sometimes alumni. The Executive Committee and the Committee on Trustees are the only exceptions. Due to the sensitive nature of discussions, these committees undertake, membership is comprised of selected Board members. However, parent and trustee involvement is encouraged and very much appreciated for all remaining committees.  Some committees actively seek new members while other committees function better as a small group of individuals with a certain expertise. Therefore, Board committee membership is always at the discretion of the committee chair.
