During the 2016-2017 academic year, approximately 40 members of the Gaynor community, including faculty, staff, parents, and Board members, worked together to develop the school’s next five-year strategic plan.
The team was tasked with reviewing the current state of the school, including strengths and perceived areas of improvement and then to create a roadmap to guide the school over the next five years. The consensus from the review was that Gaynor is a high-functioning institution that does an excellent job of educating children with learning differences. To take the school to an even higher performance level, the planning team focused on four core areas where improvements could be made in support of the school’s mission:
- Faculty/Staff Recruitment and Retention
- Community Values
- Resources to Support the Plan
These initiatives are broad and ambitious, but the teams were tasked with making sure all goals were SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-oriented), and they worked hard to create a plan that is both aspirational and achievable. During the next five years, the entire Gaynor community will work together toward achieving the goals set forth in the plan.
We invite you to explore the Strategic Plan, and we will continue to update the community on our progress as we implement the plan’s initiatives.
