In the first semester in the 2019-20 school year, the CAIS school community underwent an inclusive process to review the school guiding statements, including the Mission and Vision statements. This review process was coordinated by Mr. Jason Hayes, the CIS Accreditation Coordinator. Input was gathered via surveys of parents, teachers and students at different stages. This process led to a draft version at the end of the first semester. Unfortunately, just prior to the final round to finalize this process the school closed for COVID-19. The process was then suspended. However, the Guiding Statements have now been finalized.
