The Advisory Council works with the administrator and the pastor
to formulate school policy. The members of the Council work in
the areas of long-range planning, development and major funding,
facilities, Catholic identity, and marketing. With the pastor and
the administrator, they establish the annual budget. The Council
endeavors to create better understanding and support of Catholic
education. The Advisory Council meets on the first Thursday
of each month at 6:30 PM.
As Catholic Schools Week comes to an end, I am reminded of the
many ways in which we are blessed to be part of this wonderful
St. Ignatius community. They say, “It takes a village” and we
definitely have an incredible one!
The Diocese of Sacramento requires every parish that operates a
Catholic elementary school to ensure that the school establishes
and maintains an advisory committee, commission or council – in a
sense, a school board. St. Ignatius Parish School’s advisory
board is known as our Catholic School Advisory Council (“CSAC”).
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a
field trip, or any activity at St. Ignatius, MUST complete an on
line course provided by Catholic Mutual Group before
THIS TRAINING IS MANDATED AND A CERTIFICATE MUST BE PRESENTED TO
THE SCHOOL OFFICE BEFORE YOU MAY VOLUNTEER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY
SCHOOL EVENTS/FUNCTIONS WHERE CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. This
training must be renewed EVERY 3 years.
