Archdiocese releases school vision update

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has released a comprehensive update on the first six months of implementation of "Lighting the Way: A Vision for Catholic Schools."

The Vision, which was unveiled last August, details an array of initiatives to ensure a strong, vibrant future for the 114 Catholic schools of the Archdiocese.

"Catholic schools are an essential part of the culture of southern Ohio," noted Catholic School Superintendent Dr. Jim Rigg. "Since the Vision was released, we have worked tirelessly on the dozens of initiatives designed to ensure a bright future."

The update describes these efforts, focusing on several key components of the Vision. Details include progress on introducing a strong series of instructional standards based upon the Common Core, a Leadership Academy for New Principals, new programs to nurture the religious and faith formation of the schools, new efforts to market to potential families, and a nine-step process for guiding critical changes in schools, such as openings, closures, and consolidations. The update also describes planning for the first-ever Archdiocesan tuition assistance source, seeded by a capital campaign in 2015.
