Department of Catholic Education
Diocesan Council for Catholic Schools

Responsibilities of the Council

The nature of the work of this council is developmental and involves processes that take time. 
It is stressed with all members of the council the importance that confidentiality is maintained in regards to the discussions and these policies until officially published. 
All policies need the Bishop's approval as he is the ultimate authority of the diocese (Can381).



The Diocesan Council for Catholic Schools is responsible for the following areas:

  • Address positive experiences seen in our diocese in regards to Catholic Education to keep the superintendent well informed

  • Address areas of need in our diocese in regards to Catholic Education

  • To review and make suggestions for update to our current policies that are managed through the Office of the Superintendent

  • To develop new policies that are needed to serve the school community
