In the fall of 2015, the Diocese of Rockford with expertise of professional consultants from the Meitler group, began work to form a strategic plan for Catholic Schools in our diocese now called Faith Forward: Building our Blueprint for Catholic Schools. A draft of that strategy was shared with Pastors, Catholic school principals and educational commission members and leaders during a Catholic School summit meeting on Oct. 27, 2016.
Public feedback was gathered after that meeting and a final draft was accepted by Bishop David J. Malloy. To read the document: English | Español For Bishop Malloy's letter: English | Español
