2018 - 2019 Parent Advisory Board: The Bishop Diego Parent Advisory Board is a service organization made up of parents/guardians of currently enrolled students. Parent Advisory Board Representatives are selected each year to support the needs of the class year they represent along with addressing the general support group needs of the school. Members focus on fostering cooperation, communication and community among all elements of the school. The Board provides valuable services to the school community by orchestrating support for student events that enrich each current student’s high school experience.
