Fort Bend Christian Academy’s Board of Trustees is responsible for protecting the mission of the school; conducting strategic planning for the school; ensuring the school’s financial well-being and long-term sustainability; setting overall school policy; and hiring, overseeing and evaluating the board’s one employee, the Head of School.
The Board of Trustees is a policy-setting, strategic governing board and is not responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school. The Board meets on a monthly basis with the Head of School, who functions as the Chief Executive Officer and is responsible for all operational decisions and execution of the policies of the school. The Board also maintains regular communication with the Head of School and FBCA Executive Leadership Team and is frequently updated on all key initiatives and issues.
The Board of Trustees structure is based on recommendations by the school’s accrediting body, Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS). Members of FBCA’s Board of Trustees are selected based on a matrix of critical skill sets useful in governing the operations and goals of the organization. This matrix includes such skills as executive oversight, finance, accounting, human resources, marketing, construction and facilities management, education and curriculum, and theology. Trustees are appointed for four year terms and may serve for two consecutive terms with the past president eligible for one additional year of service.
The Board of Trustees is made up of servant leaders who volunteer their time and talents to advance the mission of Fort Bend Christian Academy. Each trustee must demonstrate a personal relationship with Christ and serve as ambassadors, policy-makers and guardians of the school’s mission.
