Strategic Planning to Authentically Grow
Presented by School Growth

September 27, 2023
St. Bernard Academy, Nashville
9:30 am - 2:00 pm CDT

Target Audience: 
Heads of School, Associate/Assistant Heads of School, Board Members, and Leadership Team members. Teams from schools are strongly encouraged to attend to work together on a strategic plan, although this is not required.

TAIS Strategic Planning Workshop Description:
Developing a strategic plan may be a requirement for accreditation or it could be an expectation of the board--whatever the motivation, it's a commitment that consumes a significant amount of precious time and resources. Will it be worth it? Will the school be stronger as a result?

Planning today is even more complex due to the rapid changes in legislation, curricular strategies, financial options, competitive pressures, and a tightening pool of talented educators. In light of these dynamics, the need for a data-driven, relationship-enabling plan seems obvious, but it’s a struggle to align expectations and progress in the organizational and leadership disciplines required to authentically and sustainably grow.

The TAIS Strategic Planning Workshop is designed to give you practical guidance to craft a plan that will elevate the experience for your leadership team and all stakeholders, helping you grow as a strategic organization.

Our learning objectives include:

  • Accurate organizational assessment using the School Growth Design Framework™
  • Data Analysis to progressively clarify the school’s current position and discover the organizational genius
  • Strategic Planning Structure with supporting disciplines to build leadership capacity, trust, and engagement

And, we’ll actually have some fun together!

Cost per person:
TAIS Member Schools: $170
Guests: $250
Snacks and lunch are included in the price of registration.
