Oftentimes, ISPD is invited to assess a Catholic school’s Development efforts, and this is usually a process that is initiated on the front end of the consultation. The ISPD Assessment is made up of five components:

  • Gathering of materials
  • Binder of questions in 21 Assessment Areas
  • Individual interviews with 25-30 selected people
  • Group sessions with administration and Development team
  • Final presentation to school leaders

The final report is filled with summaries of the interviews, a highlight section on the top 10 areas that stood out for ISPD, a review of the Assessment Areas, and a final recommendation section. As we often say, ISPD is taking a “snapshot” of the Development/Advancement efforts of the school and offering commendations and recommendations – both short-term and long-term.
