This is a recap of the Strategic Planning meeting from last night. A special thank you to the 48 people who attended.
Brother Ralph presented an overview of the process which is a series of steps over three years to obtain accreditation. The process involves the formation of a 12-member committee that include the principal, board chair, and two members leading committees in the following 5 domains:
*Governance & Leadership
*Marketing & Enrollment
The Strategic Planning Committee will meet with representatives from the Diocese on select Saturdays throughout the 2019-2020 school year. This committee will be formed through the use of local task force meetings for each of the 5 domains.
Brother Ralph then facilitated an activity in which participants at each table made a list of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of our academy. The lists were collected and will be submitted to the diocese. Many answers were very honest and we appreciated the input and concerns to help direct improvement and initiative for the future.
The meeting concluded as participants were invited to sign up for a task force (similar to a sub committee) for 4 of the 5 domains listed above (the Finance domain is for board members). Each task force will meet to focus on developing the aspects of its domain. If you were not at the meeting and are interested in participating in a task force meeting, which is the next part of the planning process, please email Mr. Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest and domain preference.
