Board of Trustees


The Chapin School Board of Trustees is the primary governing body of the school. It functions according to bylaws established in 1951 and most recently revised in 2014. The Board bylaws provide for up to 24 term trustees, eight of whom must be parents of current students at the time of their election. The Board is responsible for the establishment of policy, the appointment of the Head of School, and the preservation of the school's mission, finances, facilities, and programs. The Head of School and the President of the Parents' Association are ex-officio members of the Board of Trustees.
