The Finance committee works together for the financial stability of the school. They are involved in the approval of major expenditures. They research and suggest better ways of putting the financial needs of the school before the public. They work closely with the parent’s board officers, who are the chief fundraising group of the school. The Finance committee also prepares and presents a budget to the school commission for its approval each year.
