Council Composition

Council members and officers are selected in keeping with the by-laws. Council members are committed to educational excellence and the school’s public Waldorf-inspired mission, vision, and core values. In an effort to maximize institutional capacity, Journey School will recruit Council members who have professional skills that complement the existing Council composition. Effort will be made to recruit Council members from both the school community and the community at large, who reflect expertise and experience in any of the following areas:

  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Educational—with particular focus on Waldorf-inspired methods
  • Leadership
  • Fundraising
  • Facilities
  • Public relations
  • Non-profit board experience
  • Human Resources
  • Group collaboration and facilitation

With the understanding that effective teamwork and high levels of trust are necessary ingredients for success, Council members are expected to be collaborative, committed, and forward-thinking. The Administrator acts in an advisory capacity to Council, and is responsible for implementing Council policies in the day-to-day operation of the school.
