The group named the following members as its officers: Alicia Delamere, Chairperson; Dr. Vanessa Workman, Vice-Chairperson; Christine Fogarty, Secretary.
The new members to this year's Advisory Council are Charles Alford, Dana Gauland, Christine Kowalczyk, Julie McCaffrey, and James Zambardino. Rubi Moreno also has joined the Advisory Council as a representative from Saint Gabriel Catholic Church in Greenville. We thank them for their service to the school!
The new members replace Trish Blanchard, Heather Brockway, Scott Stanton, and Stephen Walter.
Members are selected at the end of each school year. Current members nominate potential members, who then fill out an application. After reviewing applications of the nominees, the new members are selected by a simple majority vote of the current members. Members serve terms of three years.
In the governance of the school, the School Advisory Council assists and advises the principal who in turn is accountable to the pastor. The principal, with the council's assistance, is better able to provide quality Catholic education. Members of the council are selected from the parish and broader community. Membership is not limited to Catholics since the enrolled students are of all faiths.
Minutes from each Advisory Council meeting are posted on the School Advisory Council page. Emails to contact individual council members are also available there.
The Advisory Council generally meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Saint Peter Catholic School Library. All regular meetings are open for attendance by parents of the school. Those who wish to address the Council should submit a written request to the Executive Committee (Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, and Secretary) to have an item placed on the agenda. The item must be approved and deemed appropriate for Council consideration in advance of the meeting.
