The SVA Finance Committee is an advisory committee to the SVA Board of Directors. This committee meets quarterly, at a minimum, to consider possible recommendations to the Board related to reviews of monthly/quarterly financials, the budget development process, and potential opportunities and strategies for maintaining the continual financial health of SVA and its organizations. The Finance Committee is not in need of additional members at this time.
Please check the school calendar for more information about Finance Committee meetings.
The SAAC meets quarterly, at a minimum, and is responsible for managing the annual SVA Parent Satisfaction Survey process, and for reviewing and recommending the School Unified Improvement Plan (UIP) for Board approval each year. The SAAC follows applicable open meetings laws.
Please contact the school for access to SAAC meeting agendas and minutes for prior years.
The Governance Committee consists of two separate sub-committees and each has a Board member liaison. They are the Board Election Sub-Committee and the Board Policy Sub-Committee.
