Strategic Planning Survey - Executive Summary

We are grateful for the parents and faculty members who have participated in our Strategic Planning process this spring. Your feedback and suggestions are helping guide the selection of a new school leader, upon Amy's retirement at the end of the 2018-18 school year. Attached is an Executive Summary of what the Strategic Planning surveys told us. In the short term, your suggestions are helping us plan programming now and in the immediate future. In the long term, your feedback will help us share our community values with a new leader and make sure our Governing Board hires someone who understand's SLArts' culture and can lead us into the future.
