Governance

MTSO is committed to engaging many stakeholders, led by its Board of Trustees, an elected panel legally responsible for and personally dedicated to the well-being of the school.

The board is composed of 15 at-large members and four ex officio members. The ex officio members include the United Methodist bishop from the West Ohio Area, an MTSO faculty representative, an MTSO student body representative and the president of the school. For more information about the composition of the board, contact Leigh Precise.
