The Bush School’s Board is made up of twenty-five volunteer Trustees that oversee governance of the school. The board is the guardian of the school’s mission. It is the board’s responsibility to ensure that the mission is relevant and vital to the community it serves and to monitor the success of the school in fulfilling its mission. The Board meets monthly during the school year.
This fall, we continue to highlight the newest members of the Board of Trustees. We have asked our new Trustees a series of questions to help the community get to know them a bit better.
