School Board
A Catholic school board is a body whose members are selected, discerned/or elected to participate in decision-making in designated areas of responsibility. A parish school is part of the educational mission of the parish for which the pastor is the canonical administrator. He delegates, according to diocesan policy, administrative responsibilities to the school principal, who is accountable to him. As part of the Joliet Diocese, principals are accountable to the Bishop through the Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
