Board of Education

The St. Gabriel Parish Board of Education acts in an advisory capacity to the Pastor, Principal and the staff of St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish School in accomplishing the educational and formational mission of the these programs.

The St. Gabriel Parish Board of Education consists of 12 elected members each serving three-year terms. In addition, the pastor may appoint one voting member from the parish community-at-large. The Pastor, Principal, and current Board President are ex-officio members of this Board. Elections are held each spring to replace members whose terms have expired.

The work of the St. Gabriel Parish Board of Education is to discuss full time school related issues, policies and parish wide education programs as well as recommend and set policies that assure the quality and viability of the full time parish elementary school. While parents are also always free to discuss school issues with the Pastor and Principal, matters of policy will be referred to the School Board.

The Board functions in accordance with Archdiocesan guidelines. The Board functions through its meetings, which are held monthly August through June. Committees include, and are not limited to Marketing, Finance, Education Programs, and Policy.
