Chapter 3 discusses how money is spent in a Catholic high school in the areas of operating expenses and salary rates and benefits for faculty and staff. Chapter 4 discusses advancement in the Catholic high school and the annual fund as provided by alumnus contributions and participation, and parent participation. Chapter 5 covers leadership and governance in the Catholic high school, in particular new leadership models and governing-board characteristics. Chapter 6 discusses implications for the future. The report concludes with three commentaries on the positive value of this report as a resource of statistics and other information useful for research and informed decision-making among Catholic school leaders. Appendices include models of typical parochial, diocesan, and private Catholic high schools; a national summary of mean salaries of heads of school; a list of participating schools; and a copy of the survey.
