An Elementary School

“A Capability and Willingness Study”


ORIGN OF THE STUDY
Your Parish Council of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church has commissioned a study team with researching the capability and willingness of our parish to establish and support an elementary school. The foundation of this school will be a superior learning experience for students within a Catholic values context.

 


MATTERS COMPLETED TO DATE AND FURTHER WORK
With the assistance of 35 Parish members, background research has been completed on Curriculum, Learning Technology, and Financing and Facilities Requirements. To date, a broad outline of Single Best Ideas (SBIs) of what is required to construct and operate an elementary school with a meaningful Catholic identity has been completed.

In January and February, five open invitation Educational Forums were conducted for Parish members to learn about the work in progress. In late February, eight Focus Groups involving 70 parishioners (selected at random) were conducted. The Focus Groups were designed to solicit input on the SBIs as well as gain an understanding of the willingness of Parish members to support a St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Elementary School.

The Educational Forums and the Focus Groups were organized to inform, NOT to persuade.

Now it is time to inform all and poll Parish members to determine their willingness to support the establishment of a St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Elementary School.

To inform members of the Parish, a series of Frequently Asked Questions with answers will be distributed “in the pews” at upcoming Masses and will also be made available on this website.


School Study Phase I
The Parish Council commissioned a study team in June 2009 to research the capability and willingness of our parish to establish and support an elementary school.  With the assistance of 35 Parish members, background research was done on Curriculum, Learning Technology, and Financing and Facilities Requirements.  A broad outline of Single Best Ideas (SBIs) of what is required to construct and operate an elementary school with a meaningful Catholic identity was completed.
In January and February 2010, five open invitation educational forums were conducted to inform Parish members about the work in progress.   In late February, eight Focus Groups involving 70 parishioners (selected at random) were conducted.   The Focus Groups were designed to solicit input on the SBIs, as well as gain an understanding of the willingness of Parish members to support a St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Elementary School.   The Educational Forums and the Focus Groups were organized to inform, not to persuade.
Then in late April - early May, a written survey was completed by parishioners indicating their preferences regarding an elementary.  The results of this phase I study indicated that Parish members were willing to support the establishment of a St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Elementary School.  However, additional study was needed to determine the sustainability of a school by exploring the broader Catholic and non-Catholic community interest in such a school.

School Study Phase II
In January of 2011 at the direction of Fr. Ted, a group of consultants who have worked in the area of school feasibility and school market study were contacted and invited to submit information to us.     Four firms were interviewed and Meitler Consultants was selected by St. Elizabeth Seton Parish to conduct the next phase of the school study.
The phase II study should be completed by the end of February 2012 with the results presented to the parish in mid-March 2012.
A phase III would be necessary should the survey results indicate there is a market for a school.  Phase III would include the following financial projections:
• planning costs involved in opening a new school
• construction and opening costs
• an operating budget for the first five years of the proposed school
