Parent Advisory to the Principal: This organization was started in March 2002. It contains 20-25 parents and their goal is to advise the principal on issues that affect the entire school. They meet once a month and it is an advisory board only. It does not make policy. The principal will take their thoughts, ideas, and suggestions into account before making any policy changes. 

St. Jerome School Development Association: This Association will begin in the school year of 2002-2003. The purpose of this Association is to work on two aspects for the school: fundraising and recruitment of future students. Fundraising would be for capital improvements, technology, and instructional materials. This can be done through fundraisers, grant writing or cost effective programs. The other purpose is to build on the future viability of the school. Having a constant and strong enrollment will ensure the future of the school. This would look into areas of advertising, reasons for transferring of students, and sharing of community resources.
