The Governing Board is a committee legislated by the Government, in which equal numbers of parents and staff are represented. The objective of this committee reflects the desire to decentralize decision making, leaving individual schools to make decisions that are in the best interests of their students.
Members of the school participate in the governance of the school by serving on various committees. Most committees are initiated by the school board, principal, teachers and parents. Each faculty member is enouraged to be on at least one committee on which he/she is willing to serve.
The current composition of the Merton Governing Board (2018-2019) is as follows:
|Parent Representatives:||Merrill Matthews (Chairperson)
Jacqueline Stein Elman
Brian Van Frank
Evan Posner (Alternate replacement)
|Teaching Staff Representatives:||Georgia Gotsis
