Monroe Christian School Board
The Monroe Christian School Board is responsible for guiding and governing the school. The MCS Board envisions MCS as a growing dynamic source of Christian education for our children and our community. It is the prayer of the Board that each student leaving MCS will be equipped to serve the Lord, to love fellow human beings and to care for God’s creation.
The School Board is made up of six to eight members who show evidence of:
Their personal salvation by faith and daily walk with God.
- Belonging to the community of Christ by holding membership in and faithfully attending and participating in the life of a church that is faithful to the Scripture and with whose teaching and doctrine and education is consistent with the school’s statement of faith.
- Understanding the Reformed Faith as reflected in one or more of the following ways:
a. Training and education in the Reformed Creeds
b. Christian day school/or college training
c. In-service or pre-service training provided by the school
- A gift for leadership in administration, and discernment, and an ability to motivate and encourage others.
- Understanding of and demonstrating support for the school’s mission, educational creed, purpose and goals.
- Consistency between word and deed by enrolling their own children in a CSI school, unless an exception must be made for children with special needs.
Each year, two new board members are elected at the Semi-Annual Business Meeting to replace the two retiring board members. The Board is the legally responsible, decision-making body of the Society. It adopts regulations and makes policies concerning MCS. It is responsible for staffing, policies, standards of conduct, collection and dispersion of funds.
