Tucson Country Day School is governed by a five-member school board. Members serve a three-year term and can continue on the board for as many terms as they like as long as they are re-elected by the other school board members.
The members of the governing board are responsible for prescribing and enforcing policies and procedures for the governance of TCDS that are consistent with Arizona laws and rules and policies prescribed by the Arizona Department of Education and the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools.
Board meetings are held every other month.
Agendas identifying the date, time, location and topics to be discussed at each board meeting are posted outside the school administration office and on the school website (see below). Dates for school board meetings are noted on this page and on the school’s online calendar.

Want to see what our budget looks like? Click one of the links below to see this year’s proposed and adopted budget. The proposed budget is the first budget approved by your School Board. You can think of the proposed budget as our draft or working budget. Prior to July 15 of each year, the School Board is required to approve the Adopted budget for the current fiscal year. This is the budget we will follow during the year. The proposed budget and adopted budget are usually very similar if not identical. The 12-month fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. If revenue or expenses change during the year, the School Board can approve a Revised budget and submit it to the State as needed.
