During the summer and fall of 2021 the Dr. John Kurelja conducted structured interviews with the CSIU Board of Directors, superintendents, senior leaders, supervisors, members of the teaching staff and members of the community. Dr. Kurelja reported the following findings in the summary of his entry plan:
• Relationships and communications have improved significantly over the last 10 years and more recently the pandemic provided an opportunity to deepen these relationships.
• There is a need to improve communications internally and externally about the programs and services the CSIU provides.
• As we look to the future, better communication of our capacity will lead to enhanced relationships with existing partners and new opportunities with those that better understand what we do.
• There is a great deal of confidence in the marketplace philosophy the CSIU utilizes to operate.
