Alignment at CCS

The broad vision of Cascade Christian Schools is referred to as Vision 2030. There are seven major goal areas within the vision. There are also initiatives and annual action items that fall under and align with the vision. The statement that expresses Vision 2030 at its broadest level is as follows:

To change the world by developing discerning leaders
who advance God’s kingdom in their areas of influence

 

The broad categories below also reinforce and align with Vision 2030:

Guiding Principles

Effective schools know who they are and why they exist. We know who we are and why we exist here at Cascade Christian Schools, as reflected in our Guiding Principles. [insert link to Guiding Principles page] Organizationally, we can view our Guiding Principles as our worldview, which directs our values and our behavior, and shapes our culture.

Vision

Effective schools have a clear sense of direction. They know where they are going. We at Cascade Christian Schools have a clear and concise vision that is vibrant and to which it is worth dedicating one’s calling.

Alignment

Effective schools make sure that all they do aligns with their guiding principles and advances them toward the school’s vision. Cascade Christian Schools has systems in place to ensure alignment.

Planning

Effective schools have a plan. Cascade Christian Schools has a strategic plan (those things that are critical to the vision) that is updated yearly and is placed in an accountability system, of which the MAP is a part. CCS also has operational plans (yearly improvement plans) for each division and department.

Curricular Model

Effective schools focus on the learning of each student and view all they do as curricular. Cascade Christian Schools has this view, which we carry out through our Educational Model and our Curricular Improvement System.

Calling

Effective schools operate on the premise that they can only carry out the vision by hiring the right people, those called to the purpose and mission of the school. Cascade Christian Schools is passionate about its people and their calling as we collaborate in unity—one spirit and one purpose.

Professional Development

Effective schools tie their professional development to student learning. Cascade Christian Schools is committed to supporting and providing professional development for all its administrators and teachers, as indicated in the Curricular Improvement System.
