What is the Education Commission? 

The Education Commission is a group of parishioners, elected by their fellow parishioners, who represent both the parents of school children and the parish at large.  The Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the Pastor and the administrators of St. Margaret of York Parish School on matters pertaining to the planning and operation of the school.  The Education Commission provides counsel, evaluation, and recommendations on issues and needs facing the St. Margaret of York Parish School. 

When does the Education Commission meet?  

In the 2018-2019 school year, the Education Commission will meet from 6:30pm-8:00pm on 11/27/18, 1/15/19, 3/19/19, and 5/21/19 in the Fr. Tom Conference Room in the Parish Office.  The meetings are open and agenda requests can be made to the Chairperson one week prior to the scheduled meeting.  

How is the Education Commission Structured? 

In the 2018-2019 school year, the Education Commission will have three committees.  Committees of the Education Commission change per year based on the priority and needs of the school.
