The Community Day School Board of Trustees is composed of parents and community leaders brought together to advance the school’s mission in both the school and broader community. Trustee members work to preserve the school's institutional integrity and contribute to development programs by providing financial support and involvement in major fundraising activities. Each trustee has fiduciary responsibility to the school for sound fiscal management, and they work to strengthen the school’s relationship with the local Jewish community through active participation in synagogue, Federation, and other organizations.

I didn’t know what it felt like to belong somewhere, to belong to a community, until I spent time at CDS. If I had gone to any other school, I don’t think I ever could have gotten as far as I am now. As a person, as a student, as a young woman, and as a Jew. I don’t think any school could’ve been my home like CDS was.
