School Board

The purpose of the School Board is to develop, formulate, and recommend to the Pastor educational programs for St. Rose of Lima School.  These parent volunteers are involved in such matters as formulation of grants, public relations, maintenance, and major fundraising activities.  The Board promotes the implementation of these policies, once approved by the Pastor, and evaluates their effectiveness.  The implementation of policy is the responsibility of the Pastor through the Principal.  The Diocese of Rockville Centre designs the guidelines which govern the Board.  Meetings are held monthly, from September through June.  

The School Board is responsible for fundraising that accounts for approximately 12% of the operating budget of the school.  This includes the Family Festival, our largest fundraiser; our annual Auction; the SCRIP "effortless" fundraising program; the Christmas Fair; and the Ladies ' Night Out.

In addition, the Board oversees the Parents' Social and "Buddy Program" for new school families, the Hot Lunch Program, and contributes to the planning for Catholic Schools' Week each January.
