​​​Every elementary school in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles​ is expected to have an established and functioning consultative school board.

The parish consultative school board normally assists and consults on a number of issues such as planning, policy development, financing, development, technology, public relations, buildings and grounds, alumni relations, marketing and evaluation of the board's goals, and activities of the board. The parish consultative school board works with other established groups in the school and parish community, including the parent-teacher organization, the parish council, and the Parish Finance Council​. No more than one-third of the board membership should be the parents/guardians of currently enrolled students.

​Schools that do not have an established parish consultative school board should contact the assistant superintendent at the Department of Catholic Schools​ to obtain assistance and models for investigation, education, and planning. See the Elementary School Consultative School Board: Constitution and Bylaws (sample).
