On December 8th the board voted to approve the Five Year Strategic Plan for Shining Mountain. The goal of the Strategic Planning Task Force was to develop a plan and have it passed by the end of 2015. I am very happy that that we have achieved this goal. Special thanks goes out to Mark Evans who chaired the Strategic Planning Task Force and to all of the committed members who met early mornings every week this fall. The plan itself is really the work of the entire school community, starting with the Future Search in August and continued in the All School Community Meeting. We also owe a great deal of thanks to the Governance Council who met a number of times with the Strategic Planning Task Force to help us keep the good of the students and the pedagogy at the heart of the plan.
We will be presenting the Strategic Plan at the next All School Community Meeting, January 14th at 7:00 pm in the Festival Hall. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be there when we share the plan. Once again we will be hosting an interactive experience, where the community will have a chance to ask questions about the various aspects of the plan. See you all then.
