Who We Are
In 2010, the Benedictine Sisters of St. Lucy’s Priory established a School Board for the high school with the purpose of assisting the high school as it moves into its next fifty years.
This Board is a group of volunteer leaders representing alumnae, current and past parents, grandparents, and community members. Members were invited to serve by the school’s directors. Each Board member shares a common commitment to the success of St. Lucy’s Priory High School and to educating future generations of leaders.
The Board is not responsible for decisions regarding admissions, tuition, or personnel matters. The scope of their work is to share their individual expertise in marketing, communications, development, finance, and business management to provide general support and help the school develop and implement a Strategic Plan that will serve as a guide over the next several years.
The Board meets on the second Wednesday of September, November, January, March, May and June at 7:00 p.m. in room 110. Meetings are usually 90 minutes in duration with an agenda that focuses on issues relevant to the development and implementation of the school’s Strategic Plan. Meeting dates will be listed on the school calendar and posted on the school website.
Parents of St. Lucy’s students wishing to address the Board directly with critical issues related to the school must receive prior permission before participating in the ten-minute Public Comment period held at the beginning of the Consultative Board meeting.
All requests to participate in the Public Comment period must be submitted approximately ten (10) days in advance of the meeting to the Board’s Executive Committee for consideration and approval. The Executive Committee makes all decisions regarding requests to address the Consultative Board. The Vice-President of the Executive Committee of the Consultative Board accepts any requests for presentation and notifies the Board of Directors. The Committee reserves the right to postpone all requests to a future meeting should that month’s meeting agenda not be able to accommodate additional agenda items due to time and content.
Serving On The Board
Each member of the Board will serve a three-year term, with the opportunity to be re-appointed for a second, three-year term. At the end of two, three-year terms, Board members will be termed out. Board members are eligible for reappointment after not serving on the Board for one year. Students, employees of the school, and members of a school employee’s immediate family (other than those who serve in ex officio positions) may not sit on the Board.
