The Board of Trustees is the policy making body of Los Encinos School, a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation. The Board of Trustees includes parents of students (past and present), the Head of School, and involves members of the community at large. In addition to establishing school policies, the Board has the primary fiduciary responsibility for the continued financial stability and long-term viability of the School.
This includes responsibility for the School’s operating budget, capital assets, and fundraising efforts. In addition, the Board hires, supports, and evaluates the Head of School but is not involved in the day to day running of the School. The role of the Board is to ensure adherence to the School’s mission, to safeguard the integrity of the School, and to provide for the future of the School.
I would like to thank Ilene, the faculty, the administration, and the Board of Trustees for all of their tireless work making Los Encinos what it is… the best school around and always improving. I have been honored by being Chair and am excited that Angie Platt will be succeeding me.
Having been parents at the school for over 11 years (Gigi ’14, Jack ’16, and Hank ’20), I can easily say that Betsy and I have never been more proud to be a part of this community. Congratulations to the School on its upcoming 40th anniversary!
– Michael Weisberg
Chair, Board of Trustees (2016-2019)
