School Advisory Council (SAC)

The School Advisory Council (SAC) is established as an advisory council and is consultative to the Pastor and the Principal in the governance of St. Raphael Catholic School. The Committee’s primary purpose is the advancement of the school community, in accordance with the school’s mission statement: “St. Raphael Catholic School nurtures the development of each child through faithful Catholic Education that stresses the love of Jesus Christ.”

The School Advisory Council will be replaced by a “Board of Specified Jurisdiction”.  Please see excerpt below that comes from The Healey Educational Foundation News item on this school website:

“The Healey Educational Foundation will also help the school administration set up a “Board of Specified Jurisdiction” that will take the place of the current School Advisory Council. The responsibilities of this Board will include determining the school budget and tuition, coming up with the school strategic plan, managing enrollment, fundraising planning and fundraising participation, and supporting the principal and pastor (who are part of the Board.) With the help of the Healey Educational Foundation, Board members will be drawn from the wider community, not just those currently involved in St. Raphael Parish or School. The Board will also select the principal, should that position become open. (Mrs. Aviña has committed to staying here through the 2020-2021 School Year.)”
