Greystones Community College

Board of Management

The Board of Management of Greystones Community College will be elected over the coming months. The function of the Board of Management is to oversee the management of the school on behalf of the patron, Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board. The Board of Management must uphold the characteristic spirit of the school and is accountable to the patron for so doing. The Principal is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school, including providing guidance and direction to the teachers and other staff of the school and is accountable for that management.

A board of management for an ETB school has a clear remit to manage that school on behalf of the ETB, in accordance with legislation; Department of Education and Skills (DES) circulars, guidelines and procedures; and any policies or strategies that the ETB may establish regarding the operation of its schools.

The primary role of a board of management is one of governance. Governance is about providing direction and oversight for a school while ensuring that the rights of all members of the school community are upheld and that the school is accountable for its work. The functions of a board may, in the main, be categorised under three different headings:

  • Policy setting and strategic planning
  • Monitoring the implementation of policy, strategy and plans
  • Supporting the principal and his/her staff.

Greystones Community College will be seeking expressions of interests from the different stakeholders interested in putting themselves forward to support the school as a Board member.

The Board of Management will consist of:

  • Four nominees of Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board.
  • Two nominees elected by the teachers in the school.
  • Two nominees elected by the parents.
  • The Principal is a non-voting member of the Board and is responsible for implementing the Board's policies in the day to day management of the school.
