The ELSK Board of Directors operates as a strategic board where trustees are focused on big-picture and on-going strategic planning, fiduciary oversight, ensuring legal compliance and the selection and evaluation of the Superintendent. The board empowers the Superintendent to lead, manage and guide the school as its chief executive officer.
Of the board’s nine voting members, five (5) shall be BD citizens and four (4) shall be open to any nationality.
All members of the school board are appointed for a minimum of two years with an option to extend an additional year until the member reaches a term limit of five years. If a school board member reaches the term limit, he/she must take a one-year hiatus, and then he/she is eligible for re-appointment.
