Close to 85,000 students of Catholic schools in Cook and Lake counties will return this month for the 2014-2015 academic year that will bring new programs, expansions, collaborations and celebrations with it. This year marks year two of the Schools’ strategic plan, which addresses six core goals for the Catholic school system: Catholicity, Academics, Leadership, Operations, Office of Catholic Schools (OCS) Reorganization and Funding. It is also year two of the AdvancEd system-wide accreditation. The Systems Accreditation designed for Catholic school systems aligns the schools with both the AdvancED Standards and the recently published National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
