It is the role of the Board of Directors to set general policies, direct the financial stewardship of the school and to plan for its future. The day-to-day operations of the school, including personnel matters and addressing the individual needs of any student or their parents are the responsibility of the Head of School and the school’s administrative team. The members of the Board of Directors understand and respect the difference in the leadership roles between the Board and the Head of School, all of whom are working together to achieve the same goal: offering a superior education to the children of the Memphis Jewish Community that will inspire them to achieve their individual potential and provide them with the foundation for a life-long connection to their Jewish values and heritage. The Board’s focus is on strategic and viability-related issues in partnership with the Head of School who is responsible for the implementation of the Board’s plans.
