The faculty of St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish School is blessed to be participating in Project SIMPLE with the support of the Catholic Schools Collaborative (CSC) and in collaboration with LMU/Santa Clara Universities. Project SIMPLE is a five-year program which seeks to create effective, sustainable, thriving Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Through a series of professional development opportunities for faculties and principals, SIMPLE schools receive support in various educational areas including leadership, pedagogy, social emotional learning, technology, adaptive learning, blended learning, student graduate profile development, and STEM.
The program includes ten professional development meetings for our faculty and an additional ten coaching sessions for our principal each year for the first two years, with more to follow in the coming years. In addition, each principal also receives financial literacy coaching to ensure proper financial operation of the school. Teachers will earn a blended learning certificate as they progress through this program and will truly be prepared to create personalized learning environments to teach 21st century learners.
