This past week we completed the information-gathering portion of our strategic planning process. Many of our stakeholders participated in focus groups, round tables, individual meetings, and phone calls. We are grateful to the co-chairs of this effort: Katie Dealy Polansky, Ann Luban, and David Desser, along with President, Anat Geva, and incoming President, Stacy Raviv. Special thanks and appreciation to Liz Erlich, who coordinated all of the logistics for this site visit. Thank you to the Prizmah Team leader, Dan Perla, and team visitors, Amy Adler, Dan Perla, Mark Shinar, and Traci Stratford, for leading this process so effectively. Please see the list of names below which gives you a glimpse into how many voices were heard, in addition to the over 100 parents who returned the survey.
The next step for the Prizmah Team will be to synthesize the information and bring it back to our Strategic Planning Committee. After review by this committee and through work with our board and program leadership, we will establish priorities, which will result in a five-year strategic plan. This plan will serve as a compass as we negotiate the next several years. We will keep you posted as the process continues.
Thank you to everyone who has participated in our strategic planning process. We deeply appreciate your important contributions to Chicago Jewish Day School. Thank you to:
