INTRODUCTION The purpose of the Consultative School Board is to assist the school community in its essential goal of educating young people and passing on the Catholic faith and its traditions to its students. In their pastoral statement, To Teach As Jesus Did, The U. S. Bishops state that “planning and implementing the educational mission of the Church must involve the entire Catholic community and that such involvement is achieved through such structures and processes representative of the Community.”
By drawing on the expertise and experience of its members the Board helps secure the future of the school as an institution of education and formation in Catholic moral principles and traditions, and in all aspects of education. The purpose of the Consultative School Board is to promote broader participation and to invite administrative and financial counsel in formulating policies for the operation of the school, and to assist in devising and maintaining plans of operation designed to assure the successful permanent operation of the school.
The Board shall not conflict with the daily operation of the school, other existing or future organizations which are concerned with providing advice or activities in other areas. St. Mary's Consultative School Board meets the second Wednesday of each month.
