Board of Trustees


Leadership High School Board of Trustees

Leadership is governed by an all volunteer Board. The Board consists of community, business, and educational leaders, as well as representatives from the staff, alumni, families, and the current student body. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the fiduciary oversight of the organization, for the hiring and evaluation of the Principal, and for fundraising.

Meetings are held 6 times a year on campus at 350 Seneca Avenue in Room 209. Meetings begin at 6:30 pm and generally conclude at 8:30 pm. All staff, families, students, and other interested community members are welcome to attend. Please see the calendar for specific dates.

To request an agenda item be brought to the Board for consideration, please contact the school’s Director of Administration, Corinne Benson, who will relay the request to the Board’s Executive Committee.
