Serving as a Board Member


Thank you for your interest in serving as a Sussex Montessori School board member!

The school board at SMS plays a vital role in guiding the school toward sustainability and providing an excellent Montessori education for students in grades K-6. Should you be selected to serve on the School Board, you will help craft effective school policy, oversee student outcomes, ensure SMS adheres to our charter and meets the requirements of the Delaware Department of Education.

By applying for a seat on the SMS School Board, you understand that if selected, you agree to serve a three-year term during which you will be required to complete financial and governance training programs, attend the scheduled monthly meetings either via Zoom or in-person and participate in additional committees or projects as needed. The SMS School Board is active in proposing student success strategies, adopting a thorough understanding of a Montessori education and implementing wrap-around projects to support the mission of the school. The SMS School Board holds itself to a high standard of student and community engagement and professionalism.

Should you have any questions regarding the Board or Board member application, please e-mail the Chairperson of the Board.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
