CSM Leadership, Ownership & Governance

The Holland/Bryk research, "Effective Catholic Schools: An Exploration" closely tie the relationships between ownership, governance and financial viability for Catholic schools. Catholic School Management consultants are experienced in dealing with ownership issues related to diocesan, religious community, parish, inter-parish and separate corporation models. Both civil law and Canon Law requirements are addressed in ownership studies and in the design of appropriate ownership-governance models. Governance structures for Catholic schools are tailored to the ownership requirements and may involve boards which are consultative, of limited jurisdiction, or those with full fiduciary responsibility. Catholic School Management consultants pay particular attention to the relationships between ownership, governance, sponsorship and administration.
