School Advisory Board Members
School Board Responsibility
School board by its nature is advisory to the pastor and principal. The pastor and principal participate in all regular, special and executive services of the board. The principal is the executive officer of the board and provides inservice and guidance to the board in educational matters. The pastor has final approval of all board matters.
The board has a unique relationship within the Parish and school community.
- The board relates to the parish finance committee as directed by Archdiocesan policy and procedure.
- The board relates to the school faculty and staff through the principal.
- The board represents its constituents: parents, guardians and parishioners.
- The board members act as board members only at board meetings or when otherwise directed.
Areas of Responsibility: Board Members
The school board is a leadership group within the ministry of Catholic schooling. As such, the responsibilities include:
- Modeling faith community in a spirit of cooperation and interdependence with the pastor and principal.
- Adhering to Archdiocesan policy and developing policies that enable the school to fulfill its mission.
- Assisting the pastor in the search and selection of the principal when a vacancy occurs.
- Participating in the Archdiocesan Principal Performance Review Process.
- Reviewing and advising on the school budget, tuition rates and other sources of financing.
- Developing and periodically reviewing the local board constitution and bylaws.
- Participating in the school’s development, student recruitment efforts and long-range plans.
- Acting as the public relations and marketing arm of the school and its programs.
- Participating in ongoing board inservice both at the Archdiocesan and local level.
- Evaluating annually the board’s effectiveness, productivity and internal operations.
- Directing individuals and/or groups to appropriate resources for conflict resolution.
- Participating, upon request, in the School Improvement Process.
- Monitoring the implementation of the recommendations of the School Improvement Plan.
- Supporting the efforts of local legislative action.
Boards are not responsible for:
- Acting as a grievance committee or conciliators for any group or party.
- Hiring, evaluating or terminating faculty and staff; nor do they advise principals of their responsibility in personnel matters.
- Administering the school or telling the principal how to administer the school.
- Implementing policies and procedures
It is expected that school board members work together toward the common goal of promoting the mission and purpose of Catholic education. School board members agree to a code of ethics that avoids situations that present actual, perceived or potential conflict between their interest and the interest of the school board. The Board’s code of ethics require: confidentiality, objectivity, justice, fairness and maintenance of unity.
