Dear Graland Community,

We are excited to unveil the 2017-22 Strategic Plan. Over the past year and a half, the Strategic Planning Committee of the Board, under the leadership of Sarah Harvey, has worked tirelessly to arrive at this finalized version. We are both confident that the work of this committee, which includes parents, board members and senior administrators, has
provided a road map to Graland’s future success.
Using that map, the next step is to create concrete outcomes — mile markers, if you will — that will help us reach our ultimate destination. Each year, the administration of the school will develop a “work plan” that includes short-term objectives aligned with the long-term strategies of the plan. Each of these achievements gradually moves us toward the completion of the strategic plan so that when 2022 arrives, we have realized its vision.

What is that vision? Ultimately, we want a school in which faculty are empowered to evolve in a rapidly changing educational landscape; in which students develop the resilience, resourcefulness and innovation to thrive in school and in life; and in which our community relies on the power of inclusivity to help all of us develop intellectually and ethically.

We are eager for you to join us on this journey and look forward to your contributions as we achieve the goals of the 2017-22 Strategic Plan.
