A parish's Board of Education performs a valuable function in allowing a pastor to draw upon the expertise and knowledge of skilled professionals in forming policies for the school. By sharing of their gifts, the board members are empowered with the sense that they are making a significant contribution. Once policies have been developed, the responsibility for enacting them and accomplishing their goals transfers to the administration of the school.
The School Board meets the second Wednesday of every month. If you would like something to be addressed by the board, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week ahead of time. Similarly, if you would like to address the board in person, please make your request a week in advance.
