FROM THE BISHOP OF THE SIOUX FALLS DIOCESE Dear Parents, Alumni, and Friends of SFCS, In this Year of Mercy recognizing that we are all recipients of God’s mercy through Jesus Christ, we are called to share that gift with others. Teachers in our schools are important instruments of sharing this Truth with our children. They do so not only by formal instruction but also by personal witness. They and the staff who support them seek to help our students succeed academically of course. But in addition we ask them to invite all students to discover what the Church teaches and to help them recognize how these moral and social teachings can prepare them to enter into a world that does not always encourage an active faith life. As the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools embark on the important effort to significantly raise teacher and staff salaries, which I enthusiastically endorse, we acknowledge the commitment they have made over the years to our children and families at financial sacrifice. This effort will provide a more just wage, enabling them to support their families, while also offering them additional incentive to continue to teach and witness Gospel values to our students. Raising monies for salaries will also help SFCS attract new, highly-qualified teachers when others move on or retire. For teachers and staff in our schools, it is not just a job, but a vocation, a calling. The teachers and staff of our Catholic schools have helped foster among students an openness to discern God’s will for them, encouraging young men and women to discern whether the Lord is calling them to priesthood or consecrated life. I was privileged to ordain an O’Gorman High School graduate this past year, now Father Barry Reuwsaat, ’05. Other young men graduates are in seminary formation, as are women graduates discerning religious life. Your support is essential to continuing this beautiful and life changing ministry. Thank you for prayerfully discerning how you might support the SFCS Teachers and Staff Salary Initiative as well as the operating needs of our school system. May God bless you and your families and all who support the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. Yours in Christ, The Most Reverend Paul J. Swain Bishop of Sioux Falls

From the President: Robert Wehde Dear SFCS Families and Supporters, Sometimes the best kept secrets are the ones right in front of us. Sioux Falls Catholic Schools is one of those. For the past 25 years, many have supported the belief that a Catholic education should be for all who desire one and, by sharing our collective resources, more families can be served. That simple, but profound, directional statement would become the challenging vision of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. With that vision guiding us, Sioux Falls Catholic Schools have become one of the finest examples of Catholic education in the country. We treasure the tradition of faith and excellence of these past 25 years, and now focus our efforts on the future strategic goals outlined in our comprehensive plan. During the planning process, three key focus areas were identified: enrollment, technology and staff salaries. Great progress has been made in our initial year of the strategic plan to begin working on these key areas: • Enrollment - To assist with recruitment and retention efforts, a parent ambassador program was piloted at St. Katharine Drexel with plans to expand the program to all schools. Each school in the system also hosted recruitment and retention events. • Technology -SFCS invested in updating system-wide infrastructure and provided quality professional development for our staff in utilizing technology in the classroom. • Staff Salaries - SFCS has successfully launched the Teachers and Staff Salary Initiative by incorporating an annual fundraising goal and enrollment targets for the 2016-2017 fall semester. An additional component of the initiative will help grow endowments for a long-term salary funding solution. Amazing and wonderful things happen in our classrooms every day; our dedicated faculty and staff are truly inspiring with their love and support for every student. We are blessed with gifted and motivated students who amaze us with their accomplishments. With your help, we can continue to provide a world class education for future generations of students that cherish the gift of Catholic education and treasure the 25 year tradition of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools. Sincerely yours in Catholic education, Robert R.

From the SFCS Board President: Julie Norton Dear Friends of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools: One Year. There are so many things that fit in one year and yet it feels like it flew by and here we are. I have been blessed to serve as the Chair of the Sioux Falls Catholic Schools Board and for any time I have put into this position, I have been rewarded many times over. I am humbled by the amount of time, commitment and support that our community gives in order to keep us moving forward each day and progressing to be the wonderful system that we are. I would personally like to thank the countless people who offered their support for me in so many meaningful ways. I would also like to thank Bishop Swain and the Pastors for their guidance and leadership during the past year. As I reflect on the last year, there is a common theme that threads among all of the things that we have done and accomplished - faith, commitment and family. I have noticed that these are the basis of daily work and are present in our interactions. It is truly inspiring to work with so many people who hold these values and work to ensure we are keeping them close in all that we do. It has been a wonderful year for our system and one that is full of many achievements. The Strategic Plan was finalized which puts in place a vision for our system over the next several years. There is a vision and focus associated with where we are and who we want to be in the future. We have identified priorities within several major areas. Faith. Fostering opportunities to live our mission and practice our faith is a main priority. Programs. Enhancing our programs to ensure our students receive the best academic opportunities. Technology. Policies have been structured to guide us in our pursuit of an expanded network and systems and the building blocks have been put in motion. Communication. We are working to enhance our communication to ensure we tell our story to our community. Finance, Personnel and Planning. This year we started a journey to focus on our most valued treasure, our people. From the teachers to the administrators, to our support staff, we recognize their value and their commitment. These are the extended family of our students and as a parent, I can’t think of a greater group of people who I trust to help mold my boys. We embarked on an initiative to move the needle on our valued people’s pay. Education for our parents on the effects of enrollment, the budget, tuition, and our financial aid model was completed in an effort to bring the overall picture together. The Foundation and team have done a great job of getting us started and our community has been generous in helping us meet our goals. This will be a continued journey, but based on the progress in this first year, I am confident we will continue to rise to the challenge. I recognize that all of the things that make our system great are possible only because of the amazing number of people who give in so many ways on a daily basis. Thank you to the SFCS faculty, administrators and support staff for their daily vision and dedication. Thank you to my fellow Board members and volunteers for investing of your time, talent and treasures in various ways. With such dedication in our community, I know our students will be well prepared to carry out our mission as they make their way into the world. And that is our ultimate reward and goal. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve and for your generous support along the way. Please know that each and every one of you are appreciated and valued. And know that your generosity is supporting a wonderful mission... to form a community of faith and learning by promoting a Catholic way of life through Gospel values and academic excellence.

25 years of Community, Faith and Excellence 1991 - 2016 In the 1980’s, there were five Catholic elementary schools serving grades K-8: St. Joseph Cathedral, Little Flower, St. Mary, St. Lambert and Christ the King. O’Gorman High School served grades 9-12. As the city continued to grow, pastors and lay people were asking how effective the Catholic schools of Sioux Falls were and how important the schools were in spreading the Catholic faith. People wondered how the six individually run schools would continue to be governed, financed and staffed in the long term. Some parishes were easily able to financially support their individual schools, while others struggled. Some pastors had experience in education and running a school, while others did not. More importantly, there was a dramatic decline in the number of religious available to staff the schools. There were inequities in teacher pay and tuition rates throughout the city. There was also a growing need to improve consistency in curriculum from school to school, streamline efficiencies, standardize salary and tuition structure and share a common mission. At the same time O’Gorman’s principal, Tom Lorang, was working towards his doctorate in education. As part of his research for his dissertation (which was not chosen by him, but by his advisor – which he says was God’s hand in it all) he studied Catholic schools across the country, the effectiveness, the governance, the financing and more. His research showed a clear and potential crisis in staffing the schools and paying for salaries and benefits. It was something our local schools had never had to worry about in the past with primarily Presentation, Benedictine and Dominican Sisters teaching and running the schools. Lorang worked for a year with Bishop Paul Dudley and local Pastors as well as a number of lay representatives also interested in the long-term growth and health of the Catholic Schools in Sioux Falls. “We could see the disjointedness of the schools. Some of the principals didn’t even know each other. It became obvious to us that we couldn’t sustain what we had.” Lorang says that with different tuition rates and salaries for teachers, Catholic schools were in competition with each other. Curriculums were all over the place. The quality of education was inconsistent. Lorang’s doctoral research showed that this was also happening across the country and was not being addressed. “If we were going to have quality Catholic education for our children and grandchildren, we were going to have to look at a new model.” After more than a year’s worth of meetings, a sense of synergism began to emerge from administrators, clergy and parish representatives. It was decided to form a unique triangular model between the schools, parishes and specialized committees of parent representatives. “It was a total collaboration of our priests, Bishop, families and school personnel. There was a real focus on a common mission, one that is higher than ourselves, and when all are committed to that, the expectations rise as do the achievements,” said Lorang.
