Board of Directors

GCCS Board Purpose & Supervision
The GCCS Board of Directors provides strategic direction and oversight for the entire school system (the “School”) in order to ensure effective implementation of the GCCS Strategic Plan and to discern God’s will as it relates to the future of the School. The Board directly supervises the Head of School, develops and maintains the GCCS Strategic Plan, and provides guidance concerning challenges that face the School.

Strategic Board
The Board of Directors for Grandville Calvin Christian School is a strategic board, as opposed to a tactical board. This means the Board is responsible for setting goals for the School, delegating authority to address those goals, overseeing the progress made and holding people accountable. It does not mean that the Board develops tactics for completing the goals, manages day-to-day progress toward those goals, or otherwise becomes involved in the operations that are necessary to achieve the goals.
