Board of Management

The Role of the Board of 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
