St. Jerome Parish School educates
and prepares students to be led by Christ
to be the best version of themselves as collaborative workers, complex thinkers, and servant leaders for lifelong learning and a continued relationship with God.
~SJPS Mission Statement
Dear SJPS families,
This upcoming week, February 22nd through the 26th, we will be hosting an accreditation
team at our site. COVID has changed the procedures just a bit. Two co-chairs along with one of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Office of Schools Assistant Superintendents will be at our school. The other members of the review team will remain at their own sites, accessing and reviewing our digital portfolio online.
Why do we have an accreditation team coming to our school?
Every seven years, we go through an accreditation process. The year before the visit, each school does an intensive self study. We work together to identify our strengths and weaknesses and self score ourselves in 4 Domain areas that cover 73 standards. The Domains include Mission and Catholic Identity, Governance and Leadership, Academic Excellence, and Operational Vitality. The purpose of the team visit is to validate, analyze, and provide feedback to assist us with achieving our mission and providing the best education possible for our students.
Please pray for us that we continue to work toward achieving our mission for St. Jerome Parish School. We are ready to help our students journey toward being Christ-centered, service minded, servant leaders of tomorrow!
Reminder that there is no school on Friday, February 26th. This day is set aside for our teachers to participate in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee's Sustaining the Mission classes. Sustaining the Mission is continuing religious education for Catholic school teachers in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We continue to grow in our journey to loving Jesus with our whole hearts.
