West Catholic School Board

The West Catholic School Board, as a Board of Limited Jurisdiction, shall have as its primary concern the ministry of Catholic secondary school education: the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development of the students.

The West Catholic School Board extends an open invitation to all stakeholders to attend any of its board meetings during the school year. Additionally, our board is interested in your thoughts and feedback. If you would like to share your ideas with the board, fill out the Share Your Insights Form. Your thoughts will be forwarded directly to Duane Kluting, the chair of the board, and will also be archived for future reference.
