Jesuit Schools Network Plans For The Future
The last year and a half has seen changes in the relationships between and among the Province offices and the Jesuit Conference office in DC. The provinces and conference offices are working together to fulfill the vision outlined by the founding MOU of the Jesuit Schools Network. JSN is now engaging in a strategic thinking process about the future. As always, the core focus is how best to serve and care for the schools today, and how we can all plan for our shared future.
At its meeting in October, the JSN board discussed JSN’s mission and vision and possible priorities for the next 3-5 years. In addition, a number of Presidents and Principals reviewed ideas and provided early feedback. Recently the Mission Formation Directors and the Principals spent time at their gatherings discussing priorities. Many ideas have surfaced around formation, leadership development, engagement across and beyond JSN, and responses to current challenges and “signs of the times,” such as inclusion and equity issues, the use of technology, and accessibility/affordability.
We’ll keep you informed as the plans evolve and take shape.
