Catholic School Educational Councils (CECE)
The Catholic School Educational Councils are the representative and participative institutions inside Catholic education centers. They receive funds from the state to cover marginal and rural areas in El Salvador. Students, parents, teachers and directors participate. This system of participation is centralized; its director oversees the administration of resources together with the different educational actors. They also formulate educational policies, plans and programs.
