Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is appointed by the Pastor. Its purpose is to provide advisory guidance to the Pastor and Principal regarding school policies, procedures, finance, development, and improvements. It is also charged with implementing the Strategic Plan, developed through the Catholic Schools Management process. In addition, the Advisory Council seeks better understanding and wider support of Catholic education within the local community. It also ensures that the school and its policies follow the intent and spirit of diocesan regulations.

Advisory Council Committees

The Council committees include Finance, Curriculum, Development, Enrollment, Communications, Catholic Identity, Facilities, and Technology. A Council member chairs each committee and committee members may include parishioners, parents or non-parishioners.
