2018-19 Board of Directors

Columbia Montessori School is a non-profit early childhood educational community, and has been governed by a board of parents since the beginning.  

The Board’s primary purpose is to ensure that CMS fulfills its mission and meets its stated goals. The Board also provides financial oversight, risk management, and executive oversight functions. Board committees propose policies and strategy and are responsible for the hiring, review, and termination of the Executive Director. The Board accomplishes its work through the following committees: Governance, Finance, Development, Board Development, Communications, and Building & Grounds.

Parents and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend Board meetings, ask questions, and review Board documents. Board meetings are held every third Monday of the month. Board meeting minutes are available to all parents upon request. Please see the Executive Director if you would like copies of any materials or have questions about being involved with the Board of Directors or with a Board committee.
