Board of Trustees

Board Overview

Governance for Bullis School is provided by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees. The Board carries the overall and ultimate responsibility of the School’s management, policies and financial well-being. It hires and evaluates the Head of School, who is responsible for the oversight of the daily operations and for the implementation of Board policies. The Board of Trustees serves as a major resource for the support and growth of the School.

The Board’s responsibilities include:

  • Providing sound and competent management of the School’s financial, physical and human resources.
  • Ensuring the School’s long-term financial health.
  • Establishing policy.
  • Understanding and perpetuating the School’s mission, keeping in mind its unique history and tradition.

The Board is comprised of no less than eight members and no more than 26 elected and ex-officio members. It strives to reflect diversity consistent with the stated mission of the School. Its members include alumni, current parents, past parents and individuals from the broader community who bring particular expertise and perspective. The length of an initial term is one year; elected trustees shall serve no more than three consecutive regular terms, or nine successive years.

As a team, the Board of Trustees and the Head of School work to maintain the vision for the School, consistent with its mission, and to develop and approve long-range and strategic plans.

Board Committees

The Standing Committees of the Board of Trustees are the Executive, Finance, Governance, Development, and Buildings and Grounds. Three other committees have been formed to assist the Board in the execution of its responsibilities. They are: Ad Hoc Marketing, Head of School Search Committee and Ad Hoc Capital Campaign Steering. Additionally, in any given year, task forces may be created to address other strategic issues.
