The CVCS has identified key areas that need to be addressed for the future. Areas include, maintaining teachers and staff, minimizing tuition increase, decreasing subsidy expectations for the supporting parishes.
Moving away from three elementary schools to one or two locations has been a consideration. At the October 4th Board Meeting, the Cedar Valley Catholic Schools Board reviewed four options for
reducing the number of buildings in use. At this meeting, the Board narrowed the options down to two plans that
they want to explore further and gain input on from the CVCS community.
Cedar Valley Catholic Schools has scheduled meetings at each of the elementary schools in October to gather
feedback from parents and stakeholders that the Board can consider as they explore these two plans for future
reorganization of the buildings. A Board work session has been scheduled to review the feedback that is gathered.The Board will then decide on next steps in the process at the November Board meeting.
Parents and parishioners are encouraged to attend one of the meetings scheduled at the elementary schools.
Burmese and Spanish interpreters will be available at these meetings. The long-term vision of CVCS providing a quality, Catholic Education in the Cedar Valley while being financially sustainable will be the guide for these discussions.
