The newly appointed Bluejay Strategic Planning Group will meet for the first time next week to discuss ways to market the North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation. Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin told the school board Tuesday night she’s selected nine volunteers from the community to bring much-needed perspective to the school corporation’s work.
She says the purpose is to ensure and increase positive communication between the school and the community.
“Collaboration within this group will allow us to hear directly from our school community and provide us with insight, concerns, and questions from all stakeholders. In addition, this alliance will also be able to provide information to the community regarding emerging trends and practices in education and within our own school corporation,” Zupin said.
They will meet Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the central office. The meeting is NOT open to the public. At that time, Zupin says the team will develop objectives, including how to market the school. She says enrollment and the data analysis of students who have withdrawn from N.J.-S.P. will serve as the foundation of the discussion and development of the plan. Over the past year, the corporation has lost 31 students.
