The Diocesan Board of Education is responsible for giving direction to the total educational ministry of the diocese through policy development and consultation with the bishop of the diocese. Its policies and regulations must be followed by all local (parish and regional) Boards of Education and parish council education committees in the diocese. Implementation of those policies is monitored by diocesan staff whose departments relate to the Diocesan Board of Education. The Diocesan Board also serves as the "identifiable agent" required by the Iowa Department of Education for all schools holding state accreditation.

Ordinarily the Board of Education is responsible for the religious education, youth ministry, adult education and, where available, Catholic school programs provided by the parish, region or diocese.Among activities undertaken by the Board of Education to fulfill its role will be:
Bishop Martin Amos
