LCA policy for leaders
It is the policy of the Lutheran church of Australia that principals of its schools be active communicant members of the LCA. The LCA is committed to provide quality Lutherans to undertake the position of principal. This requires planning and resources to ensure adequate provision of principals. See LCA Staffing Policy for Lutheran Schools, and, Church membership and the Lutheran school principal (login required).
