Strategic Plan

October 6, 2023

Dear Pegasus Community,

On behalf of our Board of Trustees and School Leadership Team, we are excited to announce the launch of our 2023-2024 Strategic Planning process. Seeing community engagement in our head search process this week has been inspiring, and as we search for our next leader, the school is uniquely positioned to engage in conversation about our core values and our future as an educational institution. 

Strategic planning is an important practice that independent schools like ours undergo every few years. The plan helps us clarify our shared mission as a community and defines the steps we need to take to be mission aligned. The strategic planning process involves engaging with parents, students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and the Board to develop an understanding of our school community today and to design a roadmap for a bright future. To continue to deliver exceptional educational opportunities, it is key for us to build on our community traditions, plan for a sustainable future, and imagine the possibilities for our school.

To assist us with this important work, we are collaborating with Mission & Data, a consulting firm that specializes in this field. They will engage in research and collect input from teams within our community to help us to develop our strategic vision for the future. In fact, some of that work is already in motion thanks to our Strategic Planning Task Force. The Task Force includes members from our leadership team, teaching faculty, and Board members. Ultimately, Mission & Data will guide us in using data to inform our plan, to implement our vision, and to track our progress.

Over the next several months, we will be sending out survey opportunities and asking for volunteers to participate in focus groups. We hope you will join us in these efforts and help our school develop a strategic plan that will not only celebrate our mission and who we are, but will plan for The Pegasus School of the future as well. Please look for the first survey in your inbox on Monday, October 9. We value your input, and it will be used to direct our work over the coming months.

Please reach out to us directly if you have any questions about the strategic plan or how you can participate in the discussions.  

Warmly,
