How do you assure your school can remain sustainable? Has the COVID-19 pandemic forever changed the face of independent schools? And how do you get the Board and the administration appropriately involved in working together to greater levels of success?

If you’ve asked yourself these questions, this is the ideal online workshop for you. We will explore what determines long-term sustainability for independent schools, how to make strategic tuition decisions even in uncertain times, how to monetize your mission, and what elements go into powerful strategic plans.

ISM’s 45 years of research has led to many ground-breaking principles of practice. We will discuss effective Board structure and explore the independent school marketplace so that you can fully embrace your school’s marketplace stance. You will also discover how to quantify your school's perceived parental value and demystify fundraising. This course is perfect for groups!

Takeaways:

  • Learn, use, and take home ISM’s 13-line financial planning model to support your school’s strategic plan.
  • Identify your critical, high-impact, strategic numbers and translate those into an understandable, user-friendly communications tool for your Board and Leadership Team.
  • Calculate your Stability Marker score using our proven criteria. (These are the items that strongly correlate to a school’s ability to sustain excellence over time.)
  • Discover what your Stability Marker score implies for your school’s future so you can take action now.
  • Understand ISM’s research-based system for constructing a strategic plan and supporting your strategic financial plan to serve as your six-year framework, with the flexibility to adapt to subsequent yearly changes.

Who Should Attend:

New and veteran Board Presidents, Chairs of the Finance Committee and other key Board-committee leaders, School Heads, COOs, CFOs, Business Managers, and other senior administrators should attend.

Expertise

Terry shares his expertise with private-independent schools in strategic planning and strategic financial planning, strategic performance analysis, effective school operation, fundraising, faculty evaluation and compensation, and financial aid.
