The School Board at St James The Apostle serves in an advisory role to the Principal and Pastor. Consisting of School and Parish members, and a number of key leaders from the School community, the Board offers advice on matters relating to finances, technology, a vision or strategic plan, enrollment, marketing, athletics, development and more. The Board follows legislative procedures, with executive positions of President, Vice President and Secretary.
In the Diocese of Joliet, school boards are consultative in nature. A consultative board participates in the policy-making process by formulating and adopting, but does not enact or enforce policy. Board recommendations are ultimately adopted or declined by the Principal and/or Pastor.
Board meetings are typically held once each month, August through June. Meetings are open, with an open invitation to the school community. Once approved, minutes from each meeting will be posted on SchoolSpeak, where school families can login to review.
