I am the mother of a pre-k student and wife of a teacher,
which gives me a unique prospective on the needs of those
our decisions may effect.
Clay Patrick Cibula
I have been involved with volunteering at Heards Ferry
Elementary since my oldest child of three started kindergarten
in 2013. I have served as HFE Eagle Fund Director for the
2018-19 and 2019-20 school year. We have been able to
attain record contributions from parents and teachers that go
toward academic programs including, for example, the
science lab, writing and math programs, and field trips. Other
extra-curricular activities that benefit from the Eagle Fund
include STEAM Club and Chorus. Prior to being Director, I
served on the Eagle Fund Committee for two years and was
also a chaperone for a 5th grade field trip. Having multiple
children at Heards Ferry Elementary motivates me to do what
I can to help improve the experience for my family and anyone
else that is part of the HFE community.
During my children's tenure at Heards Ferry I have been
fortunate to be a part of the strong volunteer base we have at
our school. My daughter began in the PreK program in 2012,
and my son will be a student until 2022 - this giving our family
a total of ten years spent being part of the HFE community.
During this time I have been involved in a multitude of ways,
including as a room parent, the volunteer coordinator, director
of operations, Eagle Alliance President and most recently I
have led the Partners in Education program. I would like to
serve my final two years at the school on the Governance
Council helping make meaningful decisions that impact the
future of the staff, students and parents that have help make
Heards Ferry an award winning school.
The purpose of the School Governance Council is to provide parents, school staff, and community members with a leadership role in the management of the school. The School Governance Council is a governing body that is representative of the community and the school, but operates under the control and management of the Board of Education. The Council is responsible for making decisions regarding the strategic direction of the school including:
- Approve the school strategic plan and updates
- Approve the annual budget and annual resource allocations
- Manage the Request for Flexibility process
- Participate in hiring the principal (in the case of a vacancy)
- Provide annual feedback on principal performance.
