Advisory Board

The advisory board acts in a consultative capacity to the pastor and principal.  In other words, being advisory means they do not make policy, and are not responsible for policies or actions of the school, but do offer advice, ideas, input, etc. to the pastor and principal who do make policy and do have legal and fiduciary responsibility.  Advisory board members have limited liability.  This differs from the public school boards of our surrounding communities.

The committees meet monthly and their meetings are open to all stakeholders.  The work done in these committees is critical to the successful operation of our school.  Parent input to these committees is helpful and welcome.  It is during these committee meetings that issues are worked out, ideas are vetted, and policies for the school are drawn up.  Information regarding time and location of committee meetings will be emailed to the school community and posted on the school’s website.  While the Advisory Board Meetings function as closed meetings, parents may request to be put on the agenda and speak to the board by contacting the Principal or the Advisory Board President.  The person will be given a time to enter the meeting and address the Advisory Board.

The work of these committees is then submitted to the School Advisory Board, which meets quarterly.  The Advisory Board receives information weeks in advance of a meeting in order to fully understand the information presented.  The work of the School Advisory Board is to seek clarity on work done at the committee level, and to vote on committee recommendations.
