Responsibilities of the Board

Responsibilities of the Board

The BoT is responsible for the School’s strategic direction as well as for organizational matters. This group of elected volunteers serves as the governing and executive body and ensure financial stability by establishing budgets and monitoring operations.

In 2016 the Board initiated the GISB Merit Award, an annual scholarship honoring academic excellence, extracurricular activities and community service. 

The BoT is only one group at GISB with a very specific set of responsibilities. Other groups of volunteers deal with different tasks such as the Parent Council and the Parent Association. These groups provide a forum for day-to-day questions and concerns with regard to School or the community.


Since the entire board meets only once a month, the actual work of the trustees takes place in designated committees. The committees may propose actions to be taken by the BoT. Participating in a committee is an excellent way to get a glimpse into the BoT’s business. Currently, the following committees are active:

  • Advancement Committee
  • Facility Committee
  • Nominating Committee
  • Salaries & Compensations
  • Enrollment & Retention
