The St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School Commission is an advisory board and assists the Priest and Principal in developing broad policies and direction for the school. The Commission is informed of educational and financial matters to be of greatest assistance for the general good of the School.
The Commission’s responsibilities include establishing a mission statement and strategic plan, recommending and defending policy, offering financial advice, providing optimal public relations, evaluating the Commission’s effectiveness, and — if invited by the pastor — participating in the selection process of the principal.
The Commission consists of practicing Catholics from the Parish and school community who are strong advocates of Catholic education and provide leadership, guidance, and encouragement to St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School to ensure the continuation of an active and effective teaching ministry.
