Catholic Schools In The 21st Century
In the early 1950’s the Bishops of British Columbia anticipated public funding for Catholic schools and established a society in each diocese to own and operate schools. The society established for this purpose on Vancouver Island is the Catholic Independent Schools, Diocese of Victoria (CISDV). The management of the Society rests with a Board of Directors comprised of the Bishop, the Vicar-General, a Chancellor and two persons elected by the membership of the Society at its Annual General Meeting. It governs four elementary schools and one high school, operating these facilities through a formal delegation of authority to the local school councils.
