The board needs to be mean­ing­fully en­gaged in a wide-rang­ing dis­cus­sion of the fu­ture di­rec­tion of the district. The pri­mary gover­nance role of the board is to help set the course for the fu­ture. It un­der­takes this awe­some re­spon­si­bil­ity with the sup­port and coun­sel of the district’s ex­ec­u­tive man­age­ment, in­volv­ing the com­mu­nity and par­ents and with the in­put of other key stake­hold­ers.

The board has dis­cussed a lot. I be­lieve they did get side­tracked. I think look­ing at ways to co-op­er­ate with the pub­lic sys­tem is im­por­tant, with is­sues like bus­ing and bus pass costs. There are ways to co-op­er­ate with the pub­lic sys­tem that will not com­pro­mise Catholic val­ues and ben­e­fit both sides.
