Wayland Parents Council

About the Council

The Parents Council provides support to the Trustees, Wayland’s Head of School, administration, faculty, and students in the following specific ways:  

  • By providing an organization that will involve Wayland parents in the day-to-day activities of Wayland
  • By providing opportunities for communication through an open exchange of ideas and suggestions among Wayland’s Trustees, Head of School, administration, faculty, parents, and students
  • By supporting fundraising programs designed to assist Wayland and its programs
  • By assisting Wayland in recruiting qualified students
  • By assisting with the planning, programs, administration, and implementation of various Wayland parent events, both on and off campus, including, without limitation, Family Weekends and other events intended especially for parents
  • By furthering the cause of Wayland in other positive and imaginative ways

Membership on the Council is limited to parents of students attending Wayland. One member of the Board of Trustees and Wayland’s Director of Major and Planned Gifts serve as ex-officio members of the Council. Members are elected or appointed to the Council by the Nominating Committee together with the Wayland Head of School, administration, and faculty. Council members are selected from both boarding and day students and serve for a term of two years. They may be re-elected to the Council as long as the member is a parent of a student at Wayland.
