Board of Trustees

The Role of the Board

La Salle Prep’s board is comprised of 13 alumni, parents of alumni, a De La Salle Christian Brother, and a local parish priest. Trustees are strategic thinkers who have shown a tremendous dedication to the school’s mission, its core values, and to its continued growth and development. The Board of Trustees operates under the Policy Governance model for nonprofit organizations. Policy Governance is an approach to the job of governing a nonprofit organization that emphasizes values, vision, empowerment of both board and staff, and the strategic ability to lead leaders. As a governing board, it does not function as an advisory body and is not involved in the daily operations of the school. The Board's purpose is to preserve and advance the mission of the school by developing board directives through which the President/CEO works to meet determined goals. The Board uses a system of checks and balances to hold the school and CEO accountable.
