Discussion Items: 

I.) Board Self-Assessment Survey: 

Tom Gehl presented. What ensued was a lengthy and wide-ranging discussion based on the results of the Board self-assessment survey that had been completed prior to this meeting. He presented summaries of the results, which indicated a board very much aligned on all major topics and issues. 

Included in this discussion was a consensus to continue our evolution towards more of a governance model, which given the challenges of our first year of operation, was not always 

possible. Also – a discussion of what we are looking for in our next Board member, with an emphasis on someone with experience and/or expertise in fund raising.

Margaret Daigneau presented the following information: 

  • • An update on hiring for the 2022-23 School Year 
  • • Preparations for the coming year 
  • • The possibility of delaying the start of school – a topic that would require discussion and approval in a scheduled Board meeting. 
  • • She reported on her visit to Hillsdale, along with that of several staff members.
