Framing the Future

Our school faces the consistent challenge of maintaining its strong reputation in the Portland school community because of what we do well while embracing exciting opportunities for the future. With the collaboration of Trustees and Administration, Childpeace created a community-based process of planning the school's future with a new strategic plan in 2017. The plan was adopted in the spring of 2018 and the implementation phase continued into the 2018-19 school year.

Three areas of work were outlined in the strategic plan: Organizational Development, Community Engagement, and Culture and Access. Committees were established with members from staff, board and community and each of those committees will present major initiatives to the board in May 2019. The Head of School will then make a plan, with help from the entire administrative team, to move the initiatives from the planning to the implementation stage, with the support of the Board of Trustees. Childpeace will continue to reach out to thought leaders in the field of education as well as neighbors in our community who have a stake in our future.
