Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is responsible for ensuring the School’s Mission & Core Values guide daily operations, as well as strategic oversight. The School’s Chief Executive Officer reports directly to the Board of Trustees. The volunteer board currently consists of eight individuals with varying backgrounds. Officers include President, Vice-President and Secretary. Some of the current individuals serving are original trustees associated with the formation of the school. This continuity of leadership ensures the founding pillars of the school remain at the forefront. Equally important are the parents of current students, who are represented as part of the school’s Board of Trustees.

Individuals who serve on the Board of Trustees receive no compensation for their service – they are volunteers. They are considered public officials under the Pennsylvania Ethics Act, and must file a completed Statement of Financial Interests Form each year. As a public body, the Board of Trustees must comply with Pennsylvania’s Sunshine Act, including holding meetings that are open to the public. The Board must also comply with Pennsylvania’s Open Records Law.

Board meetings are held twice each month, generally on the first Thursday and third Monday and begin at 6:00 p.m. A calendar of upcoming Board meetings is available on the School’s web site. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to balance continuity of school operations while following the CDC guidance in protecting the health and welfare of our stakeholders. The Board of Trustees will be holding limited meetings using an online digital platform – currently Zoom. Board of Trustees meetings will continue to be open to the public.

If you would like to participate in an upcoming virtual/remote meeting of the Board of Trustees using Zoom, please e-mail jim.smith@bearcreekschool.com and written instructions on how to participate will be provided. We appreciate the public’s patience and consideration as we continue to navigate during this challenging time.
