2019 Strategic Plan

A SPIRIT OF GROWTH

Dear parents, parishioners, alumni, and friends,

In January of 2019, Holy Spirit School initiated a process to develop a strategic plan for implementation over the next 3-5 years. With the guidance of Catholic School Management, the Planning Committee focused on four elements when developing the Strategic Plan: Mission and Catholic Identity, Governance and Leadership, Academic Excellence, and Operational Vitality.

As school returned to session in August 2019, the School Advisory Committee joined the Strategic Planning Committee to develop action plans and set priorities for year one. In the coming months, we will be publishing here the fruits of our ongoing work.

Our community benefits from the efforts of all who participated in the planning process to make our path forward possible: administrators, teachers, members of the school governance bodies, those who served on the planning committee, and Catholic School Management.

Most important for the success of the plan is the endorsement of the greater Holy Spirit community. We ask that you take the time to review this important work as we take the steps necessary for its successful implementation.

Sincerely,

Subscribe to receive future updates!
