CKS Advisory Council

This body is configured to reflect the Catholic Church’s commitment to collegiality and subsidiarity in accordance with the directions of the Second Vatican Council.  The Christ the King Advisory Council is an advisory council to the Principal and Pastor.  The Advisory Council assists the Principal and Pastor in developing and implementing policies and programs in order to achieve and maintain the mission statement of the School.  Minutes from monthly meetings are posted on CKS's website -  Meetings are open to CKS parents by appointment.  If you would like to attend, please notify the President.  The Advisory Council does not discuss the day-to-day operations of the school.  Those concerns should be taken directly to the Principal.

Presentation by Non-Members:
Any person or group desiring to address, or observe, a meeting of the School Advisory Council shall notify the President, in writing, of the nature of their request no less than seven (7) calendar days prior to the next meeting of the School Advisory Council.  On receipt of such a request, the President shall contact the Pastor and Principal.  An affirmative vote of these three persons shall be required to approve such a request and the approval shall set forth the amount of time and nature of the presentation to be made.  Notice of such presentations shall be given to each Advisory Council member in advance of the meeting at which it is to be made.
