Working with the Superintendent and Associate Superintendents, ISPD facilitates an internal planning process that helps organize and focus the personnel in the Office of Catholic Schools. Beginning with a one day retreat, this process creates and affirms the Mission and Core Values of the OCS, the specific positions and titles, the main roles and responsibilities of each position, and the main priorities for the Office of Catholic Schools for a specific school year. The process ends with the creation of the Top 10 Selling Points that every member of the OCS team should be promoting throughout the diocese within every Catholic school.

Based upon this work, a booklet is published, printed and distributed to all Catholic school leaders in the diocese clearly articulating all of the above areas.
