In accordance with the policies and regulations adopted by the Diocese of Little Rock Board of Education and with the approval of the bishop, the St. Joseph School board is formed as a consultative body. Actions of the board become effective only upon the approval of the pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church and under the leadership of the principal of St. Joseph School.
Unlike a public school board, the Catholic school board is not autonomous. According to the Code of Canon Law, all parish boards are consultative. Actions of the board become effective only upon the approval of the pastor. To be a school board member is more than just a commitment, and is distinctly different from a political appointment. It is to contribute one ’s talents, wisdom, experience, faith life, and good will to the mission of the school. Individual board members exercise no official consultative role outside the board meeting.
