The purpose of the Education Commission is to act as a consultative body to both parish pastors and the principal of St. Patrick Catholic School.  The Education Commission consists of six student body parents serving a three-year term.  Presently, there are four members appointed by the pastor of St. Patrick Parish and two members appointed by the pastor of St. John Neumann Parish.

The Education Commission steers six main committees, which offers advice to the operation of the school and provide support to related activities.  These include Building & Grounds; Curriculum; Finance & Long Range Planning; Legislative; Public Relations & Marketing, and Technology.  Additionally, there are key school representatives who meet with the Education Commission regularly, including the Vice-Principal, the Preschool Director, the Athletic Director, and the Home & School Association President.

Education Commission members welcome your feedback and questions.  Please feel free to reach out to any of the members during the course of the school year.  If you have an interest in joining the Education Commission, please contact the Pastor of your parish.  The Education Commission meets monthly, according to the schedule below.  If you would like to attend a meeting, please contact the President of the Education Commission in advance.
