School Governance

ASB administration benefits from strong, engaged oversight from parents and parishioners. There are a four major oversight bodies, each with a unique role in the overall governance of the school. Please refer to the School Handbook for more information.

Governance Council

Since ASB is sponsored by two parishes, a Governance Council has been established to coordinate the parishes’ shared responsibility. The purpose of the Governance Council is to advise the parish leadership on major policy issues for the school, including the annual budget and admissions policy. Its members are appointed by the parishes.
