Board of Directors
Montessori School of Franklin is a not-for-profit entity governed by a Board of Directors (BOD) consisting of nine parents elected by the MSF parent body. Each family is a "member" and has one vote for board elections. When board seats open outside the regular election period, the board appoints interested members to fill the seats until the next election.
Each parent director serves a two-year term with four members exiting one year and five members exiting the alternate year. Additionally, the Education Director is a non-voting member of the BOD.
The Board of Directors is charged with ultimate responsibility for the financial, legal, strategic planning and policy issues of MSF. The Board sets policy to be implemented by the administration and staff. Board members typically contribute more time than the 20-30 volunteer hours per year required of each family.
The Board of Directors meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. All teachers and school staff are encourage to attend these meetings. Any parent or guardian of an MSF student is also welcome.
