List of 2 items.

  • Board of Trustees

    Dalton has a Board of Trustees whose role is to set important policies for the school and oversee its fiduciary health. The Board meets regularly to discuss developments at the school and vote on policy decisions.
  • Dalton Council

    The Dalton Council is an advisory group to the Board of Trustees and school Administration. The Council is comprised of current parents and functions in a similar fashion to the Board Committees. The President of the Board of Trustees appoints the Chair of the Dalton Council. Each year, the Council addresses topics and initiatives of interest to the Board and Administration. The Dalton Council then reports the results and recommendations from that work to the Board and Administration.
