Board Of Management

A board of management of Ériu Community College has a clear remit to manage the college on behalf of the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB), in accordance with legislation; Department of Education and Skills (DES) circulars, guidelines and procedures; and any policies or strategies that the DDLETB may establish regarding the operation of its schools. The primary role of a board of management is one of governance. Governance is about providing direction and oversight for a school while ensuring that the rights of all members of the school community are upheld and that the school is accountable for its work.

The functions of a board may, in the main, be categorised under three different headings:

    • Policy setting and strategic planning
    • Monitoring the implementation of policy, strategy and plans
    • Supporting the principal and staff

The Board of Management meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month throughout the academic year.
