Through the years, ISPD has had the opportunity to work with a number of dioceses –mainly in the areas of strategic planning and in helping Offices of Catholic Schools set up formats, processes and structures for Development/Advancement, Marketing, and Enrollment Management to be successful in schools throughout the diocese. Much of the work begins with bishops, superintendents, associate superintendents, OCS staff, principals, and pastors — making sure that the foundation and principles are understood. Representative Steering Committees are formed; collaborative plans are created, and all processes are built around the themes of communication and people engagement.
