The Governance Committee handles reviews and recommendations regarding finance procedures and school facilities. Examples of their work include:
- Organize the evaluation of the performance of the board and provide a summary of the board self-assessment to the board.
- Review the school’s strategic goals and major strategies to discover what skills, experiences, and relationships the board needs today and in the future.
- Review the demographics, skills and occupations of the current board with regard to what the board lacks and should seek in new members.
- Develop a list of critical criteria for new members, based on a thorough assessment of the needs of the board and the school.
- Communicate the final criteria to the board and solicit names of possible candidates.
- Facilitate board assessment; identify the board’s needs for education and training and designs vehicles to meet those needs (i.e. Board retreats)
- Generate a list of possible annual Board goals for the Board’s consideration.
- Identify and recruit nominees for election or appointment to the Board of Trustees
