National Catholic School Standards: Focus On Governance And Leadership, Lorraine Ozar, Patricia Weitzel-O'Neill

Journal of Catholic Education

The recently published National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools (NSBECS) (Ozar & Weitzel-O’Neill, 2012) provides Catholic school educators and stakeholders with research-based criteria for operating a mission-driven, program-effective, well-managed, responsibly governed Catholic school. The standards serve as the framework within which discussion of Catholic school governance and leadership must now take place.

Journal of Catholic Education

This article describes the Notre Dame ACE Academies initiative, a university-school partnership program that provides comprehensive support to schools through a unique governance structure. The authors describe how the university’s experience of an earlier partnership initiative informed the development of the Notre Dame ACE Academies model and the rationale for establishing of a new governance model for the program. ACE developed a framework for partnership and collaboration designed to create and sustain a strong Catholic school culture with high academic standards. The program provides resources and formation to support principal and teacher efforts to enhance academic achievement, and the ...


Urban Catholic Elementary Schools: What Are The Governance Models?, Erik P. Goldschmidt, Mary E. Walsh Sep 2013

Urban Catholic Elementary Schools: What Are The Governance Models?, Erik P. Goldschmidt, Mary E. Walsh

Journal of Catholic Education

The closure of nearly half of Catholic elementary schools in the United States since the 1960s has led to the development of many innovative initiatives to stabilize, strengthen, and sustain urban Catholic elementary education. Improving school governance models has been a common agenda of these efforts. This study examined the governance models in use by urban Catholic elementary schools across the United States. Seven major governance models for urban Catholic elementary schools were identified and studied using structured interviews and document analysis. An eighth model, faith-inspired charter schools, is presented as one alternative to a Catholic school. The variety of ...

Contemplative Leadership Practice: The Influences Of Character On Catholic School Leadership, Merylann "Mimi" J. Schuttloffel Sep 2013

Contemplative Leadership Practice: The Influences Of Character On Catholic School Leadership, Merylann "Mimi" J. Schuttloffel

Journal of Catholic Education

There is a clear understanding that leaders of faith-based educational institutions shape the school community’s culture in ways that assist in faith formation. This implicit and explicit focus on faith formation and an alignment with the broader mission of the Catholic Church is foundational to contemplative leadership (Schuttloffel, 1999, 2008). Contemplative leadership practice presumes that a leader’s character, shaped by her/his communities, life stories, and virtues, is a necessary quality for making decisions that contribute to a school’s Catholic identity. Using qualitative research methods, this study explores leadership practice within Catholic schools in Australia, England, and ...


Nostra Aetate And The Religious Literacy Of Catholic Students, Cyndi Nienhaus Csa Sep 2013

Nostra Aetate And The Religious Literacy Of Catholic Students, Cyndi Nienhaus Csa

Journal of Catholic Education

In this article, I take the opportunity of the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council to reassess one of its major products, the declaration Nostra Aetate (“In Our Time”). Following a brief introduction to Nostra Aetate, I describe my experience teaching an undergraduate course on Jewish-Christian Relations built around the document’s recommendations for interfaith dialogue. Through open dialogue about religious beliefs, prejudices, and stereotypes, students made great strides in developing religious literacy, defined by Prothero (2007) as “the ability to understand and use in one’s day-to-day life the basic building blocks of religious traditions” (p. 14). I ...

Catholic School Principals: Promoting Student Leadership, Shane D. Lavery, Gregory S. C. Hine

Journal of Catholic Education

Adolescents possess enormous leadership potential. They are tomorrow’s leaders in the workplace, the family, the community, and in government. Increasingly, schools have taken on the significant responsibility of nurturing leadership in young people. Schools are, as van Linden and Fertman (1998) have noted, “hotbeds of leadership development” (p. 224). This article explores the role and function of the secondary school principal in developing student leadership. Specifically, eight principals of secondary schools in Perth, Western Australia were interviewed about their vision of student leadership and what they saw their role as in promoting student leadership at their schools. As a ...


Reaching The Youngest Hearts And Minds: Interviews With Diocesan Leaders Regarding Catholic Early Childhood Education, James M. Frabutt, Rachel Waldron Sep 2013

Reaching The Youngest Hearts And Minds: Interviews With Diocesan Leaders Regarding Catholic Early Childhood Education, James M. Frabutt, Rachel Waldron

Journal of Catholic Education

Early childhood is a critically formative stage of human development and the educational experiences of children at this young age impact their cognitive, social, emotional, and physical competencies. In the U.S., early childhood education has grown dramatically since the 1960s, both in federal and state dollars invested and in terms of overall enrollment. However, despite what is known about early childhood education in general, the picture of whether and how the Catholic education sector—particularly diocesan schools and parishes—is serving early childhood needs remains unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to begin mapping the landscape of ...
