Our program is overseen by the Preschool Board of Hixson United Methodist Church. The committee is made up of elected church members and preschool parents who meet on a routine basis to discuss the plans, activities and programs of the Preschool. 

Members of the HUMC HPUMP Board are nominated by the Nominations Committee and elected by the Church Charge Conference annually.  

The Board is responsible for the annual review of the overall Preschool program. 

The Board will receive at least quarterly activity reports and monthly financial reports from the Director. The reports will be submitted the church administrator. 

The Board will be responsible for developing future guidelines with the approval of the HUMC Leadership Team. 

The Board will have final approval of all staff job descriptions as designed by the Director.  

The Board will be responsible for the employment/termination of the Director. 

The Board will evaluate the Director periodically with input from the teaching staff.  

The Board will review for approval the staff members to be hired by the Director.  

Recommendations for termination by the Director will be discussed by the Board prior to any terminations taking place.
