Board of Directors

Redeemer School’s board of directors follows a system of leadership and oversight called policy governance.

The school is guided by a board of directors elected by our “moral owners.” In policy governance moral owners are those who care about the aims and objectives of the School, and are invested in helping achieve them. In our context this means parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, staff and church members, but can also include others in our community.

In policy governance the board of directors has four main roles:

  • Defining the overarching objectives of the organization (known as the Ends Statements)
  • Writing and revising policy that sets both expectations and limitations for the chief executive
  • Hiring the chief executive
  • Supervising the chief executive by monitoring her/his performance

Unlike other systems, policy governance narrowly defines the role of board members primarily to the functions listed above. Policy governance requires the board to speak with one voice. This means that individual board members carry no authority to act for the board except as defined by a specific board decision or policy.

If you have vision or policy-related questions or concerns that you would like to speak with the board about, please email us: [email protected].

Redeemer has given our children a God-inspired lens through which to view the world.
