Vision for Excellence in Learning at TBS
In the spring of 2010, having been invited by Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) to engage in a process of transforming our religious school programs, we quickly realized that we needed to orient our change process within a larger vision for all our TBS students - from our 2-year-olds to our 18-year-olds. We convened an Education Vision Task Force of our senior educators, our faculty, and lay leaders - guided by our congregation's vision statement - to identify the values and principles which would define our work in all of our children's learning environments. Over the course of eight months, the "Vision for Excellence in Learning at Temple Beth Shalom" (pictured to the left) was developed and adopted by our community. We remain always refelctive in our work. The vision on the left was updated in Summer of 2015.
