Board of Trustees
The Ignite School Board of Trustees has a fiduciary, generative and strategic responsibility to set direction, allocate resources, control risk, co-create value and monitor performance as well as service quality. The Board hold the school, its vision, mission, value proposition, and its future “in trust”.
The Board is representative of the school community. The School Director along with representatives of the owner are members of the Board with full voting rights. A member of the Ignite School Parent Association Executive Committee is elected with full voting rights each academic year.
Student leadership are invited to attend part of a Board meeting twice per term. Student Trustees (without voting rights) are encouraged to represent the voice of the student body on important issues.
Typically, the Board will hear reports from the Director, committees’ members who will discuss any issues of relevance and make decisions in accordance with the goals that the Board has set itself. A large portion of the Board’s work is executed in, through, or with the support of various committees. The Board empowers the Director to lead the day-to-day operations of Ignite School.
