Lakefield College School is fortunate to have a governance structure that draws upon the expertise and guidance of a committed group of volunteers who serve as Lakefield College School trustees and board members, as well as Lakefield College School Foundation trustees and board members.
Lakefield's unique governance structure is comprised of up to 100 individuals who represent a broad range of skills, expertise and perspectives. The school seeks to ensure robust representation in its governing bodies in order to build its strengths and traditions while positioning Lakefield College School for exemplary governance in the future.
For more information on governance at Lakefield College School, or becoming a trustee, please contact Kathy Green
, Board Secretariat.
Our school trustees represent the perspectives of current and alumni parents, alumni, students, teaching and non-teaching staff and from time-to-time members of the external community. The role of our school trustees is:
- to promote the school’s mission and values;
- to support the future strength and permanence of the school by providing strategic advice to the school board and school leadership; and
- to play a role in the ongoing development of good governance and effective accountability at Lakefield College School
Trustees meet twice a year, both in the fall and spring, participate in committees and task forces, and volunteer for special assignments.
LCS Bylaws are available (to trustees) upon request to the Board Secretariat.
School Board of Directors
Our school trustees are responsible for electing a smaller group of directors who meet approximately five times per year. The Lakefield College School Board of Directors plays a more "hands-on" role. Directors are responsible for approving and monitoring the school's strategic plan and implementation strategy, as well as ensuring effective oversight and monitoring of school resources and risks.
The Lakefield College School Foundation
was newly constituted in May 2006. In addition to the foundation's original custodial and investment management functions, the foundation added to its portfolio all fundraising initiatives, donor stewardship, and strategic planning relating to fundraising and endowment. The members of the LCS Foundation feel a deep sense of passion for the school's values and establishing its place as the Canadian boarding and day school of choice.
LCS Foundation Bylaws are available (to trustees) upon request to the Board Secretariat.
