THE NATIVITY SCHOOL PARENT TEACHER GROUP CONSTITUTION
The name of this group shall be The Nativity School Parent Teacher Group (hereinafter referred as "PTG").
Nature and Function
As distinguished from the School Advisory Board, the PTG does not have an official role in the formation of policy for the school. The primary role of the PTG is to provide a vehicle for parent education, informal consultation, planning and cooperation between and among parents, faculty and administration for school enrichment programs and events. Since the pastor has ultimate responsibility for the school, all decisions of the PTG are subject to his approval.
All Nativity School parents and teachers are members of the PTG. With the exception of meetings of the PTG board, any meeting sponsored by the PTG is open to all parents and teachers of the school.
The President of the PTG will be appointed by the Principal of the Nativity School in consultation with the pastor. The President may serve for a one or two year term. No one shall be eligible to serve on the PTG Board in the same position more than two consecutive terms.
The President will preside at all meetings and in consultation with the Principal will appoint a Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Room Mom Coordinator, and Committee Chairpersons as may be needed for the PTG school sponsored events.
The PTG will decide the need to conduct public meetings. Either the pastor or the principal may call special meetings. The meetings will be announced to the parents and teachers via the weekly school newsletter, email communication and/or the school website.
Use of Funds
PTG Funds shall be used only for approved school activities and PTG expenses that will benefit the whole school. No expenditure may be made without the express consent of the principal.
Rev. Monsignor Lawrence M. Purcell, Pastor August 17, 2010
