Craig School New Jersey

Board of Trustees

Mission is paramount at independent schools such as The Craig School. One of the most important responsibilities of the Board of Trustees is to be the guardian of the school’s mission. Among other things, the board must adopt the school’s mission, vision, and strategic goals and then establish policies and plans that reinforce them. 

In addition, the board should help the administrative team “be a careful steward of the school’s resources” and be accountable for the institution’s long-term financial stability. The Craig School Board of Trustees oversees operating budgets, ensuring the preserva­tion of capital assets and endowment, and actively helps raise money for the school.

Another primary responsibility of the board is to select, hire, and evaluate the Head of School.  The board works in tandem with the head, always being careful to focus its primary work on long-range and strategic issues, not the daily operations of the school.
