Board of Trustees

The Bellevue Schools Foundation is guided in its work by a Board of Trustees made up of 30-35 community leaders. Trustees are volunteers, serving three-year terms, renewable twice, for a maximum of 9 years. Trustees have the opportunity to serve on a number of different committees. Interested community members can serve on these committees with trustees as off-board committee members.
