School Board

The St. Cletus School Board works with Fr. Benz, Principal Doherty, the Men’s Club and the PTO toward the optimal operation of the school, and toward providing our students with the best possible education, academically, socially and spiritually.


The board consists of nine members, each serving a three-year term. When a board member’s term expires, nominations are accepted for his/her replacement. Candidates may be self-nominated or recommended by another school parent or parishioner. Elections are held in late April.


The pastor provides spiritual and pastoral leadership and has a supervisory role over the principal. The board serves in an advisory capacity to the pastor and ensures the accountability of the school to the community.


As a community of faith, the pastor, principal and board share a vision. All see themselves as part of the educational mission of the Church. Drawn together by their common purpose, all are concerned, not with seeking the total authority, but with developing the proper balance between all elements so that the best results can be achieved. These elements include the rights and responsibilities of the parents, the community and the Church in determining goals for the educational programs and the expertise of professionals in the implementation of programs.

 The School Board meets in the St. Cletus Parish Center the second Monday of each month, or when special circumstances arise. Visitors are welcome. If you would like to attend, or speak during the open forum, please contact Pat Sommer, and submit your topics to her before the meeting. Pat may be contacted via FastDirect, or email.
