The commission is consultative and is not a decision making body. Members cannot act apart from the pastor and the principal and cannot address issues or make decisions binding on the parish school without approval of the principal and pastor. The pastor and principal will not make significant decisions in functional areas listed below until and unless the school commission has been consulted. When the commission meets as pastor, principal, and commission members, and agrees on a policy matter, the decision is effective and binding on all.
The areas in which the Commission has responsibility and will be consulted are:
The Commission does not have responsibility in the areas of curriculum and personnel. Questions or issues in those areas should be taken directly to the school administration.
The commission is a diverse group that reflects the composition of the parish and the school. The selected membership will consist of seven to eleven (7-11) voting members. All attempts will be made to assemble a group that adequately reflects the school population. The recommended representation is as follows:
A representative from the Parents’ Club shall attend all school commission meetings as an ex-officio member as well as the principal and pastor or his delegate.
Members of the School Commission for the 2011-12 school year are:
|Angela Jacobsen||Roy Simperman|
|Kirt Neal||Tom Urban|
|Jennifer Rosario||Cynthia Uribe|
|Gerry Salois||Winston Rendall|
