"In today's educational environment, the Catholic school principal requires the assistance of a group of people who are committed to the Catholic school and are willing to work for the good of the school and parish. Just as a parish council serves with the pastor on behalf of the overall parish community, so shall the school board serve with the principal for the good of the school community."

Space in the conference room is limited. For seating purposes, please let Mrs. Smith know if you plan on attending. Thank you!

RI Catholic School Parent Federation

Father John V. Doyle School needs two parent liaisons to join the Parents Federation. Please contact Mrs. Smith if you can fill this role!

The Rhode Island Catholic School Parents Federation organizes parents to assure equal opportunities for quality education to all who desire it. It is committed to educating, advocating and mobilizing Catholic school parents, public policy-makers and the public at large to ensure that Catholic school students and parents receive all the rights and privileges to which they are entitled. Its primary purpose is to maintain state and federally mandated services which include student transportation, health and special education services, textbook loans and federal entitlement grants and services. A secondary purpose is to provide parents with access to public tax funds which may include tax credits, tax deductions and educational opportunity scholarships.
