About Us

Board of Trustees

Lexington School for the Deaf is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Trustees who are committed to the school’s mission, vision and values. The Board of Trustees meets three times a year, with the majority of the board’s work accomplished through committees and task forces. Board members, in conjunction with the CEO/Superintendent, help to determine and monitor the strategic direction for the organization. They are responsible for financial decisions, capital projects and fundraising. They ensure that the organization complies with applicable regulations and that it remains committed to its mission of educational excellence.

The board is committed to the issues of social justice and equity.  Click here to read the board's statement on social justice and equal opportunity.
