The purpose of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Consultative School Board (Board) is to assist the school community in its essential goal of educating young people and passing on the Catholic faith and its traditions to its students. In their Pastoral statement, To Teach As Jesus Did, the U.S. Bishops state that “planning and implementing the educational mission of the Church must involve the entire Catholic community and that such involvement is achieved through such structures and processes representative of the Community.” (TTJD #139). By drawing on the expertise and experience of its members, the Board helps secure the future of the school as an institution of education and formation in Catholic moral principles and traditions, and in all aspects of education.
