School Advisory Committee with the Organization

School Advisory Committee is under the President and/or Vice President’s oversight but the committee has no operational authority concerning the daily activities of the Academy or its employees. It is imperative that this group be a resource to SJVA’s Board of Directors, Administration, and School Leadership Team. If relational problems developed the President and/or Vice President can request that the Board of Directors remove the individual or groups of individuals causing a disturbance. Upon removal, SJVA’s President and/or Vice President can appoint parents and/or teachers to fill the unexpired term of those removed.
