Cedar Valley Catholic Schools Board of Education


The board is comprised of dedicated individuals who want the best educational experience for our students. Board members include a pastor, two laypersons and a representative director of religious education from each of our supporting parishes: Blessed Sacrament, Queen of Peace, Sacred Heart, St. Edward and St. Patrick. The CVCS chief administrator, business manager and the principal from each school are ad-hoc members. Board membership is voluntary.

The board typically meets the first Thursday of each month; sometimes there are special meetings and/or meetings scheduled at different times. Board meetings are held at Blessed Maria Assunta Pallotta Middle School in the art room (first floor). The room has easy access by the middle school gymnasium.

Visitors are welcome at the meetings. Any visitor who wants to speak at the meeting is encouraged to call the CVCS main office at least one week before the board meeting to be included on the agenda.


Nine elected voting members include:

  • Parish Representation (5): One representative from each parish: Blessed Sacrament, Sacred Heart, Saint Edward, Saint Patrick (H.S. program only), and Queen of Peace.

  • Pastoral Representation (2): * Pastoral Coordinator * One (1) representative named by supporting parish pastors

  • Appointed Members (2): * Two (2) appointment representatives
