FCCS School Board

 

Foothills Community Christian School has a School Board that is varied in background, but united in purpose: to see that the children who come through FCCS are taught and guided by a worldview that places Christ at the center. Each board member is deeply committed to that ideal and gives liberally of time in serving the school and helping to accomplish that mission.

* The School Board, who collectively defines the values of the organization, provides strategic leadership, articulates the vision of the organization, and ensures the organization is reaching the desired end results as specified through Board Policy.

* The Head of School, who oversess all academic staff and has primary responsibility for managing all parent and student relations including admissions, attendance, and discipline. This individual also oversees institutional finances. This individual is a direct report to the School Board.

Role of the Board and Its Members
The School Board Members encompasses a group of individuals who act as one voice for the purpose of guiding the organization for which they hold trusteeship. The Board’s purpose is to determine the desired ends and move the organization toward the accomplishment of its ends while establishing appropriate boundaries for accountability. In addition to setting vision and direction, the Board is responsible for the fiscal well being of the organization. The benefit of this type of governance is more time spent on the future growth of the organization and greater likelihood that the desired results will be reached for the glory of God
