Wornick Jewish Day School is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Trustees. Your Wornick board is united by the shared goals of providing our students an excellent academic experience within a nurturing Jewish environment, and ensuring the long term sustainability of the school.The responsibilities of the Board include strategic planning, financial oversight, and ensuring that the mission of the school is carried out. Board members dedicate a great deal of their time, skill, and energy in carrying out their responsibilities. Board members serve as volunteers and are expected to attend meetings, participate in the School’s fundraising efforts, and work collaboratively for the best interest of the school. They are asked to keep Board matters confidential, so as to protect the privacy of sensitive topics and encourage open discussion.
The board of trustees is not involved in hiring faculty or staff or employment related matters, other than those related to the Head of School (HOS), curriculum or academic choices, student programming, operations of the school, admissions decisions, or tuition assistance decisions.
The governance committee looks for candidates for the Board of Trustees who may have a background that would be helpful to the operation of the Board, such as community-building, marketing, finance, law, or schools. The committee also considers volunteer work with the school, philanthropic giving, and other connections to the school. Generally, the slate of candidates is presented to the board in May and new members are announced in June.
