What is the resource about?
-ACSI has developed a new assessment tool for schools called the Flourishing Schools Initiative. This book expands on the five domains and 35 constructs used in the assessment and frames them within an international context.
Why is it important?
-Having a standardized tool to assess our performance as Christian schools can be valuable. We might think our particular school is doing well, but against what metric? Swaner and Wolfe provide that metric, and the best part of it is that it can be reused every year (or every other year) to create comparison points.
What should I do?
-Consider signing up to participate in the Flourishing Schools Initiative. If not, read the book and see what areas your school is doing well in (and which areas could be improved).
