Saint Patrick School Strategic Planning Process


Greetings Families and Friends,
This past Tuesday evening, Saint Patrick Education Committee selected chairpersons to spearhead subcommittees for our Strategic Planning Process. The six (6) subcommittees are:

  • Creating Young Disciples
  • Learning Difference
  • Technology Support for Learning
  • Curriculum and Professional Development
  • Advancement: Marketing, Public Relations, Recruitment and Retention
  • Financial and Facilities Viability

View the draft Strategic Plan on Saint Patrick School website next week to learn more details about the work of each subcommittee.

Chairpersons will select 6-12 persons to serve on their subcommittee. However, chairpersons may invite additional applicants to serve in other roles, such as “readers”, to provide constructive feedback on draft plans generated by subcommittees.
