Future Plans

What will the future bring? And how can you help achieve our long term goals? In Fall 2019, the teachers and Executive Board worked together to develop a set of 3-5 year goals for the school. Contact our Administrator to see how you can help make our dreams a reality.

  • Facilities Expansion - We are super excited to announce that we are partnering with Trilogy Architecture to design and build a 2000 square foot multipurpose room! We need your financial support and to help us make this long-time dream come true. As part of this endeavour, we are also renegotiating our gym usage with Redding Christian School, implementing a new lunch service with Shasta Union High School District, and signing a new lease with the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento.
  • Cross-grade level curricular coordination – The teachers will be working hard over the next 3-5 years to coordinate pedagogical and curricular approaches across grades to make the Chrysalis experience more seamless from year to year, while still preserving and protecting teacher autonomy. As part of this effort, Chrysalis teachers are committed to seeking professional development to ensure that we are keeping our many gifted students challenged and engaged. Your financial support will allow the school to purchase new curriculum, retrain the staff, and revamp our enhancement program. 
  • Leadership transition – We have a chance to re-envision the leadership structure and re-affirm the teacher-powered nature of the school. Our beloved Administrator of the past 6 years, Irene Salter, will be embarking on a "gap year" of travel with her family starting July 2021. Our goal in the next 3 years is to successfully transition in new leadership and re-empower the governance structure of Chrysalis. We welcome the insight of anyone with experience in leadership transition and school governance to help advise us through this process.
