Governance Structure Overview
The Administrative Council serves as Head of School and has three members that oversee and are accountable for the three realms of school life: the pedagogy (Faculty Administrator), the business affairs (Business Administrator), and community building and development (Community Development Administrator). The Administrative Council is responsible for oversight and support for daily operations, including school programs, personnel, facilities, and resources, while effectively advancing strategic goals for school improvement. This decision-making body receives recommendations from the other bodies of the school as appropriate. The Board of Trustees oversees and is accountable for the Administrative Council.
The mission of the Board of Trustees is to ensure financial health and stability, legal compliance, physical plant integrity and creation/implementation of long-range strategic plans for the Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork in a moral and ethical fashion according to the principles of Waldorf education. The Board Committees oversee the finances (Finance Committee), recruitment of new Board members (Trustee Development Committee), the Administrative Council (Administrative Council Oversight Committee) and the Community Development Administrator tasks (Development Committee). The Board of Trustees is accountable to the federal and state governments for legal and financial compliance issues, and to the entire Waldorf community for the fulfillment of its mission.
