Key Roles of the Board:

  • Take overall responsibility for the school.
  • Set goals and policies for the school and monitor performance of the school against those goals and policies.
  • Appoint and support the principal of the school.
  • Ratify the appointment of all staff.
  • Ensure that the school operates as a good employer.
  • Ensure that there is a good communication between the school and its community.

The Board’s role is not a “hands on” management activity. The Board sets goals and policies, the principal and staff implement them by fulfilling the day to management and professional tasks within the school.
