    Much of the work of our School Board is accomplished by its standing committees.  Anyone is invited to share their time and talents by working on a School Board Committee.  Committee members need not be Board members. 

    Finance Committee: 
    This committee prepares the budget in cooperation with the school principal and pastor, presents the budget to the School Board, and monitors its progress monthly.  They prepare a long-range financial plan in consultation with the pastor and school principal. This committee oversees the Investment Subcommittee.  

    Advancement/Development Committee:  This committee shall be responsible for promoting awareness of the mission and benefits of the school and increasing enrollment through the development of marketing strategies.  Implemention of strategies will be coordinated with the development chair and principal. The goal of development is the advancement of the school, in mission, enrollment, recognition and revenue building.  The committee coordinates and oversees the work of the Revenue Raising committee and helps in establishing roles and goals each year for the overall development program. 

    Revenue Raising Committee:  This committee shall be responsible for investigating, planning and coordinating all revenue-raising activities related to the operating budget of the school.  This includes fundraising events/programs.  The committee members may chair specific events or programs, or seek members of the school, parish, or community to chair an event or program.

    Facility Committee:  This committee will be responsible for monitoring and input of the facilities portion of the Strategic Plan and assisting with any facility issues and capital projects needed for the school.  They will work closely with the principal and parish representatives for the smooth completion of such projects and will report on project status to the full board when appropriate.
