Strategic Plan 2016

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, the Board of Trustees undertook a strategic planning process to assist Burke in crafting its vision for the next three years. 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. Our work throughout this process was guided by Burke’s Mission, Educational Philosophy, and Equity & Inclusion Statements.

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

The planning document was finalized this summer and will be included in this year's Annual Report.
