Initiative for Catholic Schools

Xavier University, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Schools Office, has pioneered an outstanding professional development program for Catholic educators in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area for the past six years -- The Initiative for Catholic Schools (ICS). The 2012-2013 program is open to Catholic elementary and secondary school educators.

The topic for 2012-2013 is creating Professional Learning Communities. A professional learning community focuses on learning rather than teaching while working collaboratively and holding the professional accountable for results. The year long series of workshops will concentrate on developing a professional learning community in your school. Application for participation is open to any Catholic school team in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area.
