The end of the school year is fast approaching and many of you will be turning your attention to school improvement projects and initiatives that you want to tackle in 2024.

Whether you’re looking to overhaul assessment and reporting procedures, or develop a school-wide community engagement strategy, ISV’s Southern Cross Program is here to be your guide from concept to implementation.

School teams will work with experienced facilitators to ensure your project is grounded in best practice. Along the way you’ll gain practical strategies to help:

  • define and clarify your process challenge or opportunity
  • empower staff to lead change and continuous improvement
  • align your school’s vision with day-to-day operations
  • maximise resources and improve efficiency
  • develop an action and implementation plan.

What's your school's unique challenge or opportunity?

Every school is unique. And no project or initiative undertaken as part of the Southern Cross Program looks the same.

More than 150 school teams have been involved since the program began in 2011. Previous projects have spanned everything from improving admin and reporting processes, to enhancing student wellbeing and community engagement.

The possibilities are open, but preference is given to projects geared towards enhancing student outcomes as a result of improved school processes.
