School Board

Saint Joseph Catholic Schools have a combined school board for the elementary school and the high school. The Saint Joseph Catholic Schools Board acts in an advisory capacity to the schools Principals. This school board gives generously of their time and talents to support our students. 

Parents who are not board members are welcome to come to the beginning of any school board meeting. During this time there is an open invitation for any concerns, questions and/or other issues to be voiced by attending parents.
