School Board

Saint John the Baptist Elementary shares a School Board with Saint John the Baptist Middel School. The Board is a non-grievance consultative board made up of the administration, education experts and dedicated parents who advise the administration in the areas of policy and long-range planning. The Board meets monthly during the school year, as indicated below, to discuss goals, plans and activities of the schools and advise where appropriate. All meetings are open to visitors. There may be a Closed Forum at the end of meetings, in which visitors will be asked to leave. Visitors are invited to sit along the perimeter of the room, reserving the chairs around the table for Board members. Visitors are welcome to observe School Board meetings, but may not comment on, ask questions, etc. regarding agenda items. In addition, visitors will not receive copies of handouts, materials that are distributed. If you would like to introduce an agenda item, please contact the Board President, Devin Novara at  by 8:00am one week before the monthly meeting. The President will meet with the Executive Committee to decide if and when the item belongs on the Board's agenda, or will suggest an alternate body to address it. The President will have discretion whether or not to place the item on the agenda and to allot a specific amount of time to the item.  If you would like to serve on a Board committee, please email the Board President, Devin Novara at
