Undertaking a Feasibility Study for School Start-Up and Exploratory Committees

Thursday, February 19, 2015 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)


Exploring the possibility of starting an Episcopal school? One of the most important components of the planning process is a feasibility study to test community needs and the demand for a new school. What are the essential components of a feasibility study? How long does it take and how is it completed? How is the data from the study evaluated and used in the planning process? This webinar will address these common questions and offer practical tools for moving forward.

David Kasievich, Head of School, St. James School, Philadelphia PA
David Kasievich was hired to conduct the feasibility study for St. James School, a tuition-free Episcopal middle school in Philadelphia. He then became the school’s Executive Director and was hired as the school's first head. David will share the process and components of St. James’s feasibility study as well as how its results informed decision-making for the school’s founding.
