Five-Year Strategic Plan: 2016-21

Every organization needs a plan – a vision of where it wants to be in the future and how to get there. During the 2015-16 school year, our Board of Trustees engaged in a strategic planning process to assist Burke in crafting a vision for that future. They looked at the school's past and present achievements, explored the school's strengths, and identifed and developed a plan to address areas for growth and development.

The Board formed a Strategic Planning Committee under the leadership of co-chairs Jennifer Danish and Janine Goodman, both Burke parents and trustees. They also engaged Washington-based independent school consultant Maggie Szymanek, of Uncommon Consulting, to facilitate the process.
