School Advisory Board


The School Advisory Board is established by the Pastor of Good Shepherd Parish in accord with diocesan policy, to assist him and the administrator in the governance of Good Shepherd School.  When the Board meets as Pastor and members, and agrees on policy matter, the decision is effective and binding on all.  The Board is consultative in the following sense: the members cannot act apart from the Pastor and cannot make decisions binding on Good Shepherd School without the approval of the Pastor. 

The areas in which the Board has responsibility and will be consulted on are:

1.  Planning

2.  Policy development and formulation

3.  Financing (including budgeting and policies for financial management)

4.  Public Relations

5.  Selection and accountabilities of the principal

The School Advisory Board is composed of the administrative team (Pastor and Principal) and the other Board members, who are appointed by the Board for a 3-year term.
