School Board Governance

School Board Governance

For the Future of Catholic Schools

Boards of Specified Jurisdiction have a bias for action to advance the mission of the school. Unlike advisory boards that make recommendations but have no official authority, they are accountable for the governance and fiscal health of the school. These working boards offer a stark contrast to the days when members listened and discussed but stopped short of implementing real change.
