School Advisory Board   
What is the School Board?

Seeking to be guided by the Holy Spirit, the School Advisory Board is a consultative body that provides direction and advice to school administration and the Pastor regarding issues that affect the school.  It is made up of the Pastor, President and Principal, plus members who serve three-year terms.

The Advisory Board assists the Principal/Pastor by recommending policies, identifying educational needs and articulating the aspirations of the school and school community.  These goals become the basis for program objectives, policies, and action plans for the educational program. School Board Members will participate in Board Standing Committees.

School Advisory Board Meetings

All meetings are held on the second Thursday every other month in the School Library at 7pm, unless otherwise specified. No meetings are held in July. All School Advisory Board meetings are open to the public, except when an Executive Session is called to order.

If you have an agenda item you wish to be included, please inform the School Board at least one week prior to the monthly meeting date. Please note that only issues that fall into the scope of the School Board will be placed on the agenda.  


Standing Committees

Development Core 
The Development Core Committee was formed to create a proactive, sustainable fundraising and development approach that supports the financial well being of St. Hubert School.  All families are called upon to make an annual Development Commitment that can be met through a variety of options, including attendance of sponsored events, participation in the Track A Thon and Black & Gold Gala, or a monetary donation.  Another key purpose of these activities is to build and promote community in the school and parish family.

Public Relations
Through recruitment and retention efforts, the Public Relations Committee seeks to grow the St. Hubert School student population and retain current students/families. Open House kicks off the annual enrollment campaign. A variety of promotional tactics are used to attract potential Kindergarten families to tour during Open House and to register for the upcoming school year. In recent years, initiatives have also focused on promoting to families looking at middle schools in the area, resulting in larger numbers of transfer students in all grades. The Public Relations Committee works closely with the Marketing and Catholic Schools Week Committees to coordinate promotional and Open House activities.

Budget & Finance
The Finance Committee's primary responsibilities include developing, executing and monitoring an appropriate financial strategy for the school in concert with the Pastor and Principal. This includes: Oversee the Development Committee in setting financial goals and reviewing actual results.

Marketing
The primary goal of the Marketing Committee is to promote St. Hubert School and enhance the school’s communications internally and externally. To accomplish this, we have created a sustainable communications plan, consistent image and messaging, and ongoing communications to school committees and families. Expertise within the committee includes communication planning, execution and measurement of programs; visual design; writing/editing; public relations; printing; and technology solutions.

Alumni
The Saint Hubert Alumni Committee is actively engaged in locating and reaching out to SHS Alumni that span several decades. The Committee works with alumni to create an active and vibrant Alumni Association focused on building community and creating a lasting legacy.  A dynamic and effective Association will help further the St. Hubert School mission and support “Excellence in Catholic Education” for generations to come.

Grants and Research Committee
A catalyst for great change by gathering supportive data, the committee will research grant opportunities and prepare quality grant applications to help with academics, technology, professional and family improvements.
