The Girls’ School of Austin is governed by a Board of Trustees that has long-term vision, strong fiscal acumen and is well-grounded in "best" practices for outstanding private schools. The board actively supports and maintains the School's mission, values and vision and accepts ultimate responsibility for the School's legal well-being and financial and administrative strength and advancement.
Four standing committees oversee the affairs of the School:
Committee on Trustees
The Committee on Trustees plays a vital role — ensuring that there are enough qualified board members on the team, nurturing relationships with potential board members, and providing orientation and training to board members.
Chair: Susie Kelly
The Finance Committee is responsible for budgeting, development of financial controls, record-keeping, bookkeeping, and finance.
Chair: Keith Smith
The primary role of the development committee is to advise the Board and staff of the school on all matters pertaining to fund development and to oversee and coordinate the ongoing fund development efforts of the school.
Chairs: Anissa Allbritton and Leigh Christie
The Facilities Committee reviews and, in consultation with the Finance Committee, recommends for approval any buildings contemplated for lease, or construction, and recommends for approval all plans and cost estimates for new facilities. The Committee analyzes all facilities with regard to use of materials that have the best cost factor from a life-cycle and energy efficiency point of view, and presents such findings and recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
Chair: Bronson Dorsey
