Dear Members of the Spence Community,
We are delighted to share with you The Spence School's Long Range Plan 2009, adopted by the Board of Trustees on October 24, 2009.
All good schools are dynamic entities, constantly looking ahead and setting goals that ensure continued vitality. In that spirit, early in 2008, the Spence Board of Trustees with the involvement and input from the school community—parents, alumnae, faculty and administrators—embarked on a process to create a road map for the next five years. By design, the plan outlines broad areas of focus, leaving detailed action items for future collaboration with a wide circle of stakeholders and participants. Our school's Long Range Plan provides an ambitious framework as we continue to consider and pursue our aspirations.
On behalf of all who worked to articulate the directions that Spence will consider over the next five years, and with appreciation for all who will help us bring this vision to fruition, we invite you to read and reflect on our plan, and, most importantly, to remain engaged in shaping our future.
Head of School
Chair of the Long Range Plan
