The Roanoke Catholic School Board recommends policy to the Superintendent of Schools consistent with the diocesan policy, with state guidelines and directives for the operation of the school so that the largest possible number of students may be effectively educated in a Christian environment where they are encouraged to make a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ. The primary function of the Board is to recommend policy in the areas of strategic planning, finance, development, and building and grounds.
The five supporting Catholic parishes as well as other school-related organizations are represented on the School Board. The Board meets in the school library at 6:00 PM on the third Wednesday of each month. Meetings are open, and parents, students, and teachers are encouraged to attend.
Roanoke Catholic School retains the right to amend the School Board Handbook at its sole discretion. Parents and students will be notified promptly if changes are made.

“According to Canon Law, the Bishop, as the chief catechist of the diocese, has the final authority over all schools….
In the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, each Regional/Parish school must have a Board of Directors….
The Board of Directors functions as a consultative body to the Superintendent of Schools (in regional schools)/Pastor (in parish schools) in the following areas:
- Strategic Planning
- Development (recruitment, marketing, endowment, etc.)
- Buildings and Grounds
Policy-making for a school is the responsibility of the Superintendent of Schools/Pastor….
The purpose of the Board of Directors is to recommend policy to the Superintendent of Schools/Pastor consistent with the diocesan policy, state guidelines and directives for the operation of the school so that the largest possible number of students may be effectively educated in a Christian environment, and encouraged to make a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ and the Church.”
