The Board of Trustees is responsible for establishing broad policy goals
that align the operation of the school with its mission, providing fiduciary
oversight of the school's operations, and supporting long-range strategic
planning to ensure The Phillips Brooks School's future.
The Board is comprised of between 15 and 18 members. It strives to reflect
diversity consistent with the stated mission of the School. Its members
include current parents, past parents and individuals from the broader
community who bring particular expertise and perspective.
Members may serve two three-year terms. Requests for nominees are solicited
from the community. The Governance Committee of the Board of Trustees then
selects its candidates based on a set of specific criteria and presents a
slate to the full Board for election in the spring.
Committees of the Board of Trustees currently include the Executive,
Development, Finance, Facilities, Governance, and Investment Subcommittee.
In any given year, task forces may be created to address other strategic
issues. Officers of the Board
are nominated by the Chair of the Board and are elected by the full Board
