School Advisory Board
The St. Martin’s School Advisory Board (SAB) advises the pastor and principal regarding policies that govern school programs, in accordance with the Archdiocese of Washington (ADW) Board of Education. SAB’s responsibilities include facilitating the enrichment of educational activities, working with the administrative team to draft the school budget, and creating both long and short-term school related planning strategies. The guidelines that oversee the Advisory Board’s overall operations are contained in ADW’s School Board Policy Handbook and can be found in the school office.
