School Board

The School Board serves the principal and pastor in areas of policy, budget, and long-term planning. It is composed of nine elected members. Representatives from the Athletic Board and the Parent Teacher Group (PTG) also sit on the School Board and are voting members.

The Board does not act as an arbitration committee, nor does it administer the school. The Board assists the principal and pastor in setting fees and tuition, is advised upon the withdrawal of students from Saint Philip Neri School, and confers with the principal, teachers, and other school personnel when appropriate.

The Board endorses the fact that parents have the primary right and responsibility for the education of their children and supports the concept, underlying the Privacy Act of 1974, that school officials keep pupil information for parents and not from them. It supports the procedures for compliance with IRS regulations which prohibit racial discrimination as outlined by the California Catholic Conference and is followed by all diocesan schools. The principal of the school is an executive officer of the Board without voting rights and other salaried employees of the school are not eligible for membership.
