Board of Directors
Graded is governed by a self-perpetuating board, whose twelve members are appointed for up to four two-year terms. The Board was first established in 1931 and continues to set the school’s fiduciary policies, annual budget, and fundraising goals, based upon input from the superintendent and Leadership Team. The Board stewards the school’s financial resources to provide for current needs, while protecting and enhancing the endowment for the benefit of the institution’s future. The Board is also responsible for hiring and evaluating the superintendent.
“The work involved in procuring and maintaining high-quality professionals for an international faculty is a challenge for any institution. Graded Board members have committed significant amounts of time to ensure that the school retains and recruits the best teachers, despite a complex economy. It is a pleasure to work with such dedicated individuals.”
