The Catholic school is an expression of the educational mission of Good Shepherd Parish and of the Diocese of Harrisburg. Just as the Parish Pastoral Council serves with the Pastor on behalf of the total parish community, so too, the Good Shepherd School Advisory Board serves as a consultative body to the Pastor and Principal for the good of the school program.
With the various demands for expertise required of a Principal today, the need for a consultative group of people who are committed to the Catholic school and willing to work for the good of the school and parish is important.
The Board is constituted by the Pastor, in accord with diocesan policy, to assist the Pastor and Principal in a consultative capacity regarding educational enhancement, policy development, public relations, development/fundraising, buildings and maintenance and long range strategic planning.
