School Board


Welcome to the OSLS School Board

Purpose of the School Board

The Board’s purpose is to encourage and support the school ministry of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in a manner consistent with the vision and values statements of the Church and School through advisory interchange with the School Principal, Preschool Director, Pastor, teachers, and through conversations and contact with families from the school, church and community.  The School Board serves in an advisory capacity to the Church Council on matters pertaining to the school ministry.

 

Membership

The Board shall consist of a minimum of five and a maximum of nine voting members, in addition to the Pastor, Principal and Preschool Director who shall serve as non-voting members of the Board. Three members of the Board must be current members of the congregation. A maximum of two non-church members may be appointed to serve on the Board at any given time, subject to them agreeing to and signing a Statement of Faith. The Church Council is responsible for the recommendation and appointment of all School Board Members which will be carried out in consultation with the seated School Board members, Principal, Preschool Director and Pastor.

 

Terms

Board Members will serve for a three-year term and will be appointed by the Church Council in June of each year, or as soon there after as reasonably possible, with an effort made to appoint approximately one-third of the Board Members each year, resulting in staggered terms. Board members may serve no more than two consecutive three-year terms, for a total of six years.

 

Monthly Meetings

The School Board meets on the third Tuesday of each month in the Founder's Room. Meetings start at 6:30pm and are open to all, except for required closed session portions of the agenda.
