A Program of Schools for Children

advisory board

The Lesley Ellis School Advisory Board functions as the primary volunteer leadership group within the school, as well as an official committee of the Schools for Children Board of Trustees. The dual and complementary functions reflect the important role of Lesley Ellis School within its parent organization, while recognizing how strong and committed leadership from within the LES community helps advance the school’s goals. The Advisory Board consists of current Lesley Ellis parents, parents of alumni, and outside educators. All members are appointed for two-year terms by the Schools for Children Board of Trustees.
