The purpose of the Board is to recommend policies consistent with Diocesan and state guidelines and directives for the operation of Saint Mary’s Catholic School – Richmond so that the largest number of students may be effectively educated in a Catholic environment and encouraged to make a deep personal commitment to Jesus Christ and the church.
The primary function of the Board is to develop and recommend to the principal policies in the areas of development, finance, strategic planning, facilities, marketing and legislation that will ensure the successful operation of the School.
The Diocese of Richmond has prepared a handbook for the Diocesan School Board that delineates the functioning of local school boards. This School Advisory Board Handbook (revised January 2012) can be found on the Diocesan website in the Catholic Education Ministry pages.

Mr. Tim Layton, Chair and Facilities Committee Chair
