Planning our Future

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 Bill Roth, the chair of the board, and will also be archived for future reference.

If you wish to address the board on a particular matter, please make a request at least 10 days in advance of the meeting you plan to attend.
