The board of the Victoria Christian Education Society (which operates as Pacific Christian School) consists of 7 to 10 persons elected by the Society. It in turn elects officers who serve as chair, vice chair, treasurer, secretary and various other standing committee functions.
The board acts as the guardian of the vision and mission of the school society. Through the Superintendent they ensure the school’s day to day plans and activities fulfill the school’s mission and vision. Each board member serves a term of office for three years, and may be reelected for one additional subsequent term. The school board’s duties include:
- Determining the long term strategic direction and priorities of the school
- Overseeing school policies
- Appointing and supervising the Superintendent
- Ensuring the short term and long term financial sustainability of the school
- Advancing the cause of Christian education
The school board’s duties do not include day-to-day operations of the school. These needs are better addressed by contacting the student’s teacher or principal directly.
Our Governance Committee (a standing committee of the board) is charged with finding suitable candidates to fill vacancies on the board as they arise. They seek out committed Christians with specific gifts and abilities to maintain a diverse group of leaders who work together to guard the mission and vision of Pacific Christian School, and who at all times have the best interests of the school community in mind.
