As we move through the Choice Impact Study, we will offer opportunities to learn more about the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program and its potential impact on our parish.
Fr. Andrew will address our school families at Sts. Peter & Paul School’s Open House + Parent Meeting. At this time, Fr. Andrew will provide a brief overview of what we are exploring through the Choice Impact Study.
Lunch + Learn Focus Groups,hosted by Fr. Andrew and Mrs. Howington, will provide school parents the opportunity to learn more about the Indiana Choice Scholarship program in a small group setting. All questions, discussion and feedback are welcome.
Learning Sessions will be held to help school families and parishioners ask questions and learn more. Learning sessions will be held:
Wednesday, August 30 at 5:30 p.m. in the FLC
Sunday, September 17 immediately following 10 a.m. Mass in the school cafeteria.
AChoice Impact Survey will be sent to all school families after time to review the Indiana Choice Scholarship eligibility guidelines. The results from this survey will provide important data and feedback to help us better understand how tuition / Choice scholarships will affect our school families.
Resources will be posted on our school website, including information and studies by the Indiana Department of Education and Indiana Non-Public Education Association.
Choice Impact Study communication will be shared across the parish as new information becomes available.
Data Gathering and Analysis Throughout the next three months, Fr. Andrew will consult with key stakeholders to study the impact a tuition-based model could have on Sts. Peter & Paul Parish. Input from our parish council and finance committee, parishioners, staff, school families and outside resources will be used to further examine the pros and cons of this decision.
Our Choice Impact Study will conclude in November. At this time a decision will be made regarding school tuition for the 2024-2025 school year. All Sts. Peter & Paul parishioners and school families will be notified of the decision. If needed, additional resources will be provided to families.
