Role of the Board and Its Members
The Board of Directors encompasses a group of individuals who act as one voice for the purpose of guiding the organization for which they hold trusteeship. The Board’s purpose is to determine the desired ends and move the organization toward the accomplishment of its ends while establishing appropriate boundaries for accountability. In addition to setting vision and direction, the Board is responsible for the fiscal well being of the organization. The benefit of this type of governance is more time spent on the future growth of the organization and greater likelihood that the desired results will be reached for the glory of God.

Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends of RCS
God has called the Board of Rosehill Christian School to be stewards of this ministry and protect the school through policies ensuring fiduciary responsibility and inspiring the organization to achieve God’s purpose and goals for the school. We, as a Board, desired to hear your views and opinions to help us gauge and interpret the school’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. Our 2013 survey was sent to parents, staff, alumni, and friends of the school. From these responses, we have drawn several conclusions:
1. Overall, the school is achieving the desired academic and spiritual goals (called “ends”) as 73% rated the school’s attainment of our “ends” favorable, with average scores of 4 to 5 across all categories. In addition, the highest scores were for the questions “Rosehill meets the spiritual needs of my student” and “Rosehill meets the academic needs of my student” along with “Students are proficient at grade level in reading, writing, mathematics and basic sciences.”
2. The lowest scores were for students modeling Christ-like behavior and spiritually influencing their homes and communities. While some parents commented that these are hard ends to measure, clearly a continued focus on Christ and his commands about how to treat one another need to remain a focus of the school.
3. High school parents also rated items slightly lower than elementary and middle school parents, indicating that the school will need to look closely at our ends and how they relate to the High School program. One score particularly low was that “student’s spiritually influence their homes and communities.” The administration of Rosehill Christian School and the Board will re-examine this end, and the processes that support it and determine an appropriate response with the intent of improving performance toward this objective. In addition, the Board and the administration will review all of the “ends” this year to continue to define additional success measures in line with the intent of each “end”.
4. There were some individual concerns and issues raised as anticipated. And while there were not trends in the comments across the individual responses, the administration has been given a list of these concerns and will determine an action plan related to each and report back to the Board about their actions.
Some additional highlights include:
• The top priorities for the school were providing : excellent academics, a Christ centered education, and instruction on how to model a Christian worldview.
• There were 112 individual responses from just over 500 surveyed
• 16% of our parents responded, above the typical national average of telephone survey responses of 9%
• Friends of RCS gave their highest score to the question “Rosehill meets the spiritual needs of our students”
• The alumni gave their highest scores to “Graduates have a good working knowledge of the Bible” and “Students can listen actively, think critically and solve problems logically.”
For additional information, please examine the associated presentation of data at your leisure and let us know if you have any further questions. We look forward to ensuring our focus remains on excellent Christ centered education as we seek to live in the light of our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ in the coming year. Thank you for your responses and your continued prayers.
