Webinar 1


As our schools provide an atmosphere of growth to our students, an effective school board provides the leadership, guidance and support vital for our school’s growth. Whether a school board has been in place for several years or is just forming, it is critical that they have the tools and information necessary to be effective, mission-oriented leaders. Proprietor’s Appointees on the Board are full members of the Board with all the same rights and obligations as other Board members. In addition, Proprietor’s Appointees also have some special responsibilities. This is an opportunity  to come together for three sessions to explore specific aspects of their roles related to the Catholic character of their schools.
