Diocese of Des Moines Metro Region Catholic School System
The Diocese of Des Moines has a new position within its diocesan schools. It has begun the search for a President of the Diocese of Des Moines metro region schools; the search will run from Jan. 28-Feb. 18. The metro region is being formed to establish operational vitality through a preschool-12th grade system approach within the 11 elementary schools and high school located in Des Moines, Iowa. The Diocese of Des Moines elementary schools have experienced two consecutive years of increased enrollment serving 4,577 students under the leadership of 16 administrators. The newly formed position follows upon the past two years' work on implementing a vision of excellence for Catholic schools by replacing the traditional parish model of Catholic education to a metro region Catholic school system model that will sustain and steward available resources to ensure an optimal Catholic education. The new model will fulfill the diocesan mission for the next generation of students and families. The President will work with the Bishop, Superintendent of Schools and a Board of Education to establish advanced funding models for Catholic education, compensation equity for faculty and administrators, enhanced funding for tuition assistance, and leverage shared economies of scale.
