The Bishop McGuinness Board of Education is an advisory body chartered to assist the school and diocesan administrations with institutional and program planning and support in certain important activity areas of school life.
While it is not a governing authority as such, it does provide essential input in evaluation of the effectiveness of programs and approaches at the school level. The Board is made up of school administrators, alumni, parents of students and recent alumni, and other supporters of the school, who are chosen for their parish affiliations, for their particular areas of expertise which might be of value to the school community, and for their history of helping the school community to thrive and prosper.
Each Board member either chairs or serves on one or more of the following committees: Alumni Relations, Arts, Development, Finance, Program, and Spiritual Life. Other members of these committees are volunteers – not necessarily members of the Board itself – who are usually parents, alumni, or other supporters of Bishop McGuinness.
The types of activities in which the Board members are normally involved include, for example, helping plan and carry out marketing and fund-raising efforts for a variety of projects at Bishop, administering and planning the Bishop Athletic and Academic Hall of Fame inductions programs, organizing alumni activities (including the Alumni Association’s on-line approach to communication), organizing and managing religious and spiritually oriented student activities, and helping the faculty to coordinate student club activities.
We appreciate your interest in our Board's activities. If you have questions, or are interested in serving on the Board or on one of our committees, or simply are interested in helping as a volunteer in an area where you have experience and/or expertise, please contact us by phone through the Main Office 336.564.1010
