All current CHA parents, all full time and part time faculty, and all full time staff (i.e. entitled to benefits), are automatically members of the Christian Heritage Academy Association. The Association typically meets twice per year (fall and spring) when the Board of Directors reports on the state of the school and brings items before the Association for their vote. Key responsibilities of the Association include the election of nominated candidates to the Board of Directors, approval of the annual budget, and other matters as they may arise. Members of the Association may serve on various committees and commissions.
Board of Directors
The CHA Board is the governing body of the school. Board members, whose numbers range from nine to fifteen, annually elect officers to serve as Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. The President attends all meetings of the Board of Directors, and works closely with the Board, functioning ex-officio as executive adviser and administrative leader of the school. Members of the Board may also serve as chairs and members of various committees/commissions. The CHA Bylaws spell out the primary functions of the Board:
“The affairs, business and all legal matters of the Corporation shall be managed by its Board of Directors, including responsibility for strategic planning, policy making, fundraising, budget oversight, spiritual leadership and directing the Head of School. The Board of Directors shall help set the spiritual tone for the school. Members of the Board of Directors shall individually and corporately pray for the administration, faculty, staff, parents and children of the school. They will be inclined to prayer, ever mindful of their own dependence upon God for His grace and wisdom manifest in their leadership.”
Association members are welcome to attend regular meetings of the Board per the following guidelines:
Please email the Board President and Vice-President before the meeting you would like to attend. If you have a concern you would like to bring before the Board of Directors, please submit it in writing two weeks prior to the meeting you wish to attend. Prior to bringing a concern to the Board it must have already been addressed in the manner as outlined in the CHA Matthew 18 policy.
