BOARD OF SPECIFIED JURISDICTION

PURPOSE

Our Board of Specified Jurisdiction  (BSJ) exists to serve Pope Francis Global Academy, which is one school on two campuses supported by four founding parishes - Our Lady of Victory, St. Cornelius, St. Pascal, and St. Tarcissus - and the Archdiocese of Chicago. The Pastors have the ultimate responsibility for their parish and the Executive Pastor and Superintendent of Schools have the ultimate responsibility for the school.

The Executive Pastor and Superintendent delegate to the Head of School the responsibility for daily operations of Pope Francis Global Academy.  It is the Pastor and Superintendent who establish the Board of Specified Jurisdiction.  

Such a Board of Specified Jurisdiction is intended to bring professional expertise in the specified areas to enhance the educational and spiritual leadership the school. The Executive Pastor and Head of School do not relinquish their leadership in the school’s educational program and its Catholic identity and practice, and spirituality; they welcome the BSJ and its members to collaborate in providing for a strong infrastructure for the school in Planning, Development, Finance, Ministry Effectiveness, Marketing, Recruitment, and Enrollment Management.

If you are interested in a role on the BSJ, please contact Margaret Kinel, Head of School at mkinel@pfgacademy.org.
