The role of the LFCDS Board of Trustees is to be responsible for the School and the welfare of students and faculty. The board plans, develops, and establishes policy and regularly assesses the performance of the School. The trustees of the School hold regular meetings once each month except during December, March, May, July, and August. At these meetings, the board reviews financial statements, receives committee reports, and discusses and acts upon questions of policy. The trustees carry on this work primarily in small committees to ensure a thorough study and discussion of policy matters. A school requires thoughtful, dedicated trustees who fit the board's and the School's needs, are prepared to volunteer sufficient time to learn about the School and about trusteeship, and who come prepared to board and committee meetings in order to effectively implement appropriate policy for the success of the School.
