2016 Strategic Plan
Three Pillars of Success
The 2012 Strategic Plan established our Three Pillars of Success. The three pillars, Student Success, Professional Environment and Culture, and Financial Sustainability remain relevant and solid representations of the necessary areas of focus to keep Flagstaff Academy as a leader in our region.
This is why we exist. This embodies our customer, our product, and our promise. The academic, social, and emotional health and success of our students is our primary purpose.
Professional Environment and Culture
No single factor has greater impact on student achievement than Quality of Instruction. The hiring, training, development, and evaluation of teachers is the primary goal of academic leadership. Quality teachers, a safe environment, and a positive culture will result in Student Success.
We are stewards of taxpayer dollars. The foundation of charter schools is doing better with taxpayer dollars than traditional schools. We strive to lead best practices in finance, accounting, and business practices. Doing so supports Student Success and Professional Environment and Culture.
2016 Strategic Plan Goals
The development of the goals of the new strategic plan were centered on the Three Pillars of Success and what programs and initiatives would provide the greatest impact to fulfilling our mission and serving our students. Academic goals are centered on improving math and language arts proficiency as well as developing the well-rounded, whole child. Professional environment goals are targeted at programs that improve teacher effectiveness and quality of instruction, increase leadership capacity within the organization, and ensure an empowered, satisfied workforce. Financial sustainability goals are aimed at long-term planning to ensure adequate resources are available for teachers, Flagstaff Academy maintains a strong enrollment pipeline and sets itself up for managed growth in the future.
