Parents' Association BylawsPREAMBLE
Under the charter of St. Nicholas School, all governing authority is vested in the Board of Trustees. In keeping with this responsibility the Board of Trustees authorizes the creation of organizations to serve as liaisons with wider publics and to serve in advisory capacities. These organizations have no governing authority over the school and exist at the will of the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees must approve the purpose or mission statement and the bylaws of each organization.
At the discretion of the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the current president and/or president-elect of a recognized organization may be invited to attend a regular meeting of the Board to facilitate communication between the Board of Trustees and its wider constituencies.
A recognized organization is the St. Nicholas School Parent Association.
