The Syracuse Diocese Catholic Schools engaged with the Institute to provide assessment services and professional development. All schools in the Diocese participate in the annual Catholic School Improvement Survey for Parents. This data helps schools engage with key stakeholders, finding areas for improvement as well as areas of praise that can be used to market the school and increase enrollment and retention. The schools also collect the Catholic School Improvement Survey for Students & Staff. This data helps schools identify and focus on areas within teaching and learning that need improvement.
The Institute meets individually with each school principal and leadership staff to help review and understand their data, and provides similar assistance to the Diocese staff.
