Our School Board
Holy Souls School follows the school boards policies and procedures set forth by the Diocese of Little Rock Office of Catholic Schools which states that each Catholic school in the Diocese of Little Rock will have a consultative school board in accordance with the policies and regulations adopted by the Diocesan Board of Education and approved by the Bishop.
Unlike a public school board, the Catholic school board is not autonomous. According to the Code of Canon Law, all parish boards are consultative. Actions of the board become effective only upon the approval of the pastor. To be a school board member is more than just a commitment, and is distinctly different from a political appointment. It is to contribute one ’s talents, wisdom, experience, faith life, and goodwill to the mission of the school. Individual board members exercise no official consultative role outside the board meeting.
