Thank you for your interest in the activities of The Gardner School of Arts & Sciences’ Board of Trustees.

The Gardner School is a non-profit organization governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees whose role includes strategic planning, financial oversight, and setting broad school policy. The Gardner Board also hires the Head of School to serve as the chief executive officer. Comprised of unpaid volunteers, the Gardner Board includes current parents, alumni parents, community members, and friends of the school.  

The Board meets once a month and, unless otherwise noted on the schedule, meetings are open to members of the school community.  To allow these meetings to run smoothly, we request that guests respect the following:

  1. Trustees have an agenda to discuss, such that they are not able to engage in unscheduled discussions or topics.
  2. If you have an issue that you would like to discuss with the Board, please contact the Chair by noon on the Friday prior to the scheduled Board meeting. At that time, the Chair can determine whether sufficient time exists on the agenda for the issue to be brought before the Board.  
  3. At times, the Board may go into closed door Executive Session and excuse all guests from the meeting.
  4. All discussions and documents are to be treated with confidentiality.

We look forward to seeing you!


Gretchen Grey-Hatton, Board Chair

Denise Case, Vice Chair
