Saints Francis & Clare Catholic School

    School Commission

    The Saints Francis & Clare of Assisi School Commission is a consultative body to the pastor, working in collaboration with the school administration to support the mission and ministry of Ss. Francis & Clare of Assisi Catholic School.  The School Commission is a group of 11 SSFC parishioners, primarily parents with students enrolled at SSFC. During their 3-year terms, Commission members provide input regarding policy, develop and oversee a strategic plan, and advise school leadership on varied matters.

    The School Commission is assisted in this effort by a larger group of parents performing work on 5 subcommittees: Monitoring, Finance, Facilities, Marketing/Development, Technology/21st Century Learning and Parent Partnership.  Each year, new Board members are selected during the spring months to begin serving terms in August.  To inquire about becoming a committee member, contact the Chairperson or email
