Setting your school's direction

Strategic planning is implicit in the overall policy roles of your school board. This planning provides clarity and purpose in your school's renewal and development.

Your board should seek to identify a preferred future and plan to achieve it over a cycle of three to five years. A school’s Strategic Plan may reflect the values and beliefs of the school’s vision statement and incorporate policy development, curriculum, financial, building and community elements.

The Principal, as Executive Officer of the school board, undertakes the development of a plan for school renewal in conjunction with the school board and appropriate staff of the Catholic Education Office.
