The SPC School Board servers in an advisory capacity to the Pastor of the St. Paul of the Cross Parish and the Principal of the St. Paul of the Cross School.
The Board’s Mission is to support, promote and evangelize the following: “We believe that God’s will is to spread the Good News and make disciples as Jesus did. St. Paul of the Cross School is committed to minister and teach His message to our children. We are committed to develop a community of love and service in which the child grows academically, socially and spiritually in cooperation with his/her parents. In particular, we will impart a knowledge of the needs of the poor and an awareness of third world countries.”
St. Paul of the Cross School Board is responsible for the development of policies to govern the operation of the school. All such policies must be in accordance with those established by the Archdiocesan School Board and are subject to the pastor's approval. The pastor, in collaboration with the board, shall screen, interview, and hire the principal. It is the responsibility of the Board to review and advise on the annual budget prepared by the principal. Final approval of this budget is the responsibility of the pastor. The Board is also responsible for working with the pastor and the principal to set tuition rates and develop and support fund-raising necessary for operating the school.
The Board has seven members who are elected for a three-year term. The Principal and Pastor also serve on the Board, but are not voting members. The Pastor retains the final decision-making responsibility on all Board recommendations. Elections are held each year in the month of May.
The School Board meets the last Tuesday of the month from September through June. Notice of Board meetings is published in the monthly calendar. Detailed minutes are taken at every Board meeting and are posted on this web page as soon as they are approved which is usually at the next month's meeting. The School Board sets annual goals and evaluates its progress in accomplishing goals each year.
