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.
II.) Head Principal Topics:
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.
A motion by Brian Hastings to adjourn – motion passed.
Meeting was adjourned at 5:20 PM.
