Board of Trustees
 
The Park Day School Board of Trustees and its committees include parent/guardians, staff, and outside community members. In keeping with the school’s commitment to provide open and fair access to governance opportunities, eligibility for our board is evaluated primarily in terms of an applicant's level of commitment to Park Day's mission and values, and relevant skills. Our monthly board meetings are open to the school community. You are welcome to contact the Board Chair, Tanya Mayo, with any comments or questions at: board.chair@parkdayschool.org.

Board Advisory Committees
Board Advisory Committees are an operational arm of the Board. They operate under Board leadership (in coordination with corresponding administrative directors) and may include Board, Staff, parent/guardian, and broader community members. Advisory committees do not have intrinsic Board authority but may make recommendations for action to the full Board. The array of Board Advisory committees will evolve as school needs and awareness change. Currently, the Board is considering the best structural approach for addressing its mission-based commitments, in particular to diversity, equity, and environmental sustainability. During this process, the Board’s Governance Committee will hold responsibility for oversight and advancement of school goals related to these issues.
