POINT LOMA CLUSTER SCHOOLS FOUNDATION (PLCS)
In 2006, a group of parents, teachers and principals from each school engaged in a strategic planning process to develop a unified vision for the Point Loma Cluster and formed the Point Loma Cluster Schools Foundation (PLCS). The primary objective was to increase communication between and coordinate the efforts of the cluster schools, thus supporting the development of the cluster into an outstanding, cohesive K-12 environment for the children of Point Loma and San Diego. The Strategic Plan was adopted June 7, 2007.
The PLCS received widespread support and participation not only at the local school level, but also from district staff, the two area superintendents, and the area Board of Education member. The grass roots effort of the PLCS was the first of its kind within the school district and was seen as a design model for other clusters within the district. The PLCS is a 501c3 California nonprofit public benefit corporation.
As a result of the strategic plan, the PLCS established the following purpose of the PLCS:
The Point Loma Cluster Schools, through innovative practices and collaborative efforts will be the model of educational excellence; inspiring passionate life-long learners, critical thinkers, unbounded achievers and responsible global citizens.
The mission of the Point Loma Cluster to inspire in each student a joy of lifelong learning and inquiry about one’s individuality, community, and the world. Our commitment is to sustain and support the best practices in education that empower each child with knowledge, skills and values necessary to become confident, self-sufficient adults and global citizens. The result is the highest quality option for all.
With the purpose of developing vertically aligned programs K-12 throughout the Point Loma Cluster, the PLCSF has identified the following priorities:
