Strategic Planning PT 2020

The beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year brings with it the launch of our Strategic Planning Process for the next generation of our Strategic Plan, PT 2020. The Board of Directors has approved our master plan as a "plan in process" and the new Strategic Plan will aim to align with this evolving campus master plan. The master plan can be seen as a flexible framework by which the school can begin to make long-term decisions about where future structures should be placed and how current structures may evolve. The new Strategic Plan will weave itself into this framework and help define the vision for Park Tudor's future.

A Strategic Planning Steering Committee has been created as a subcommittee of the Board's Long Range Planning Committee, and three strategic focus areas have been identified. Over the course of the year, the committee will conduct learning sessions on these focus areas whereby we will begin to create a lens through which to view change, develop priorities and generate action steps moving forward.
