School Advisory Board (SAB)


The St. Elizabeth School Advisory Board (SAB) is to provide guidance and counsel to the School’s Executive Team (Pastor and Principal) in the governance of the School.  The functions of the Board are to assist the Pastor and Principal in planning for the future of the school, develop a school budget and make recommendations on expenditures for improvements to the school building(s) and grounds, consult with the Home and School Association on fundraising activities for the school and assist the Principal in the development of various programs for the faculty, parents and students.


The School Advisory Board meets in the evenings of the third Tuesday, every other month.  The Board convenes for a special budget review meeting in December.  


The St. Elizabeth School Advisory Board is comprised of up to eighteen members including the Pastor, Principal, Vice Principal, and the Director of Admissions.  Candidates for the board are nominated by the board to the administrative team for appointment approval. Each member serves a three-year term, and reappointment is at the discretion of the administrative team.
Members of the Board include: school parents, members of St. E’s parish who are recommended by the pastor, one faculty member chosen by the faculty or principal and the Home & School Association Presidents.

The Board fulfills its purpose and exercises its functions in accordance with the mission and goals of the St. Elizabeth parish and school and the goals, policies and regulations of the Archdiocese of Washington.
