POLICIES & PROCEDURES
The John Carroll School is an independent, Catholic school, operated by its own elected Board of Trustees and administrated by a President and Principal leadership model. The School has been blessed with a wide variety of facilities and extensive grounds and they play a significant role in helping JCS fulfill its purpose and mission. With the continued growth of The John Carroll Schoo, we have found it necessary to formalize and expand our policies and procedures. Their purpose is to assist us in using our finite space and resources in the very best way possible. In addition, they help us to maintain focus on the overall vision and mission of the school. Support for these policies will assist with our existing activities as well as continued growth here at JCS. We must also ensure that every reasonable precaution has been taken to limit exposure in areas such as life, safety and security. Our efforts to be good stewards of the entire facility are critical to our mission and are also an expression of our appreciation for the way in which God has blessed The John Carroll family. We see the campus as a tool which we can use to support our primary mission as a faith-based school and to partner with other groups and organizations that are compatible with our mission. For those reasons, the policies and procedures in this document have been adopted by the Board of Trustees and Leadership of The John Carroll School to ensure the proper usage and continued good stewardship of our facilities, campus and resources.
Please read JCS FACILITY USE POLICY AND PROCEDURES for important information.
