Board of Directors

Board Executive & Board of Directors


The Netivot HaTorah Day School board of directors has ultimate fiduciary responsibility for the school. In addition, the board has three main responsibilities:

  • Setting strategic direction for the school
    The board is responsible for setting the mission and vision of the school and for ensuring the strategic priorities of the school are aligned with that vision and mission. Board members are expected to serve as goodwill ambassadors for Netivot in order to help further its aims as an educational institution.
  • Ensuring the school has adequate resources
    The board is responsible for approving the annual operational budget, setting tuition, and ensuring the school’s finances are being managed effectively. All board members are expected to play an active and integral role in all fundraising efforts.
  • Selecting, Supporting and Evaluating the Head of School
    The board reviews the Head of School’s annual goals and works closely with the Head of School to ensure that the school is providing a high-quality mission-aligned education to its students. This partnership is at the core of the school’s long-term success. The Board evaluates the Head of School annually. 

The board meets monthly as a group, and additionally on subcommittees that make recommendations to the board regarding such areas as finance, development and strategic planning.
