Board of Trustees
The Pegasus School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation. As an independent school, a Board of Trustees governs the School. The Head of School is an advisor to the Board and is a non-voting officer of the Board.
The Pegasus School is part of The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and follows the Principles of Good Practice for the Board of Trustees.
The Board’s main responsibilities are to oversee:
The Board is the guardian of the School’s mission. The Board sets the mission, ensures that it is relevant and vital to the community, and monitors the success of the School in fulfilling the mission.
The Board plans strategically. Its work is forward-looking and long-term.
The Board works to ensure the School has adequate financial resources. The Board protects the School’s assets with proper controls and oversight, responsibly manages the School’s endowment, and oversees the development of the budget.
Head of School
The Board hires, manages, and supports the Head of School, who is responsible for the management of the School. As a result, Trustees do not get involved in operational matters under the purview of the Head of School. These include admissions, staffing, curriculum and program, and student disciplinary matters, to name a few.
