Board of Trustees
The Lycée Français de Chicago is governed by its Board of Trustees which serves as the steward of the school's educational mission and financial health.
The Board's responsibility is to adopt a clear statement of the school's mission, vision, and strategic goals. It establishes policies to ensure the Lycée's long-term growth and success.
The school President is responsible for implementing the Board’s policies and plans and for the day-to-day management of the Lycée. The President hires faculty and staff and oversees the development of classroom policies and the curriculum.
The Board of Trustees and school administration ensure that the concerns, values, and expectations of parents and other constituents are considered in all decisions regarding the quality of education. The President of the Parent Association, an ex-officio member of the Board, attends Board meetings to ensure two-way communication with the parent community.
