STATEMENT OF GOVERNANCE

Governance refers to activities of the governing Board of Trustees (BOT) of the Pine Mountain Settlement School. Governance is that act of framing laws, policies, and missions for the Administration of the institution.  Administration is concerned with the implementation of the products of Governance and is centered on the duties of the Executive Director of Pine Mountain Settlement School. Management is a coordination of activities to achieve goals and objectives undertaken by Administration.

Governance establishes the mission and the strategic plan with the Administration which then sets the goals and objectives. Governance (BOT) ensures that all the processes of Administration and Management are compliant.
