Governance

Telluride Mountain School is governed by a self-perpetuating, independent Board of Trustees. The board’s primary responsibilities are to carry out strategic planning, approve the school budget, conduct annual and capital fundraising campaigns, and hire and supervise the Head of School..

The school bylaws allow the appointment of up to 15 trustees, but no fewer than three. Since the school’s founding, the board has generally consisted of six to nine trustees, including the Head of School who sits on the board as a non-voting, ex officio member.

New trustees are nominated by the board’s Committee on Trustees and must be endorsed by a two-thirds vote. The Committee makes every effort to invite prospective trustees to serve on a board committee for at least one year prior to nominating that individual to a board seat. Prospective trustees are evaluated with respect to the skills they would bring to the board and their level of commitment to the school.

The board has a number of permanent committees and has, from time-to-time, named ad hoc committees to deal with specific issues. Permanent committees include the Finance Committee, Development Committee, Communications Committee, Committee on Trustees and Facilities Committee.
