The Board of Management of Dalkey School Project NS is constituted as all other Boards of Management for National Schools. The powers and responsibilities are those set down for all schools, by the Department of Education and Science.
The Board of Management is comprised of the school principal and a representative of the teaching staff. Apart from that, all members of the Board are parents of children currently enrolled in the school. Members represent the Patron, parents and guardians and the wider community.
Each member of the Board has responsibility for some aspect of both the day to day running of the school, as well as longer term policies. This is done in close co-operation with the teaching staff, and particularly the principal, the idea being to bring complementary skills, as well as time, to the School. Members of the Board also liaise with other committees involved with the School, such as the PTA, the Dalkey School Project Executive or patron body, and Educate Together, which is the umbrella organisation for Multi-Denominational Schools.
