Message from the

Board of Trustees' President 

Dear Armstrong Community Members,

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to share with you the work and goals of the Board for the 2017-2018 school year. 

The Charles Armstrong School Board is currently comprised of 16 Trustees who volunteer their time and resources to advancing the mission and goals of Armstrong.  Board composition reflects the strategic expertise, resources, and perspectives needed to achieve the mission and strategic objectives of the school.  For those of you who are new, please see the Board of Trustees section of the school’s website under “Who We Are” for a complete description of the structure and role of the Armstrong Board.   

The Board’s goals for the 2017-2018 school year are determined by Armstrong’s three major strategic priorities:

Fulfilling our Promise to deliver our mission with excellence and to be a leader in education for students with language-based learning differences including our groundbreaking partnership with the University of California, San Francisco to transform and accelerate dyslexia research and to bring research to practice.

Enhancing our Facilities to meet the needs of our program.

Securing our Future by attracting, developing and retaining the best possible faculty and staff and ensuring Charles Armstrong School maintains its long history of financial and organizational stability and programmatic excellence.

Driven by these strategic priorities, the Board approved the following primary goals for the 2017-2018 school year:

1.  Initiate a process to set strategic direction for the school that begins with a review and refresh of our mission and values.  Our strategic planning process will engage our community and be paced to coincide with the school’s work to achieve accreditation through the California Association of Independent Schools. 

2. Continue to grow philanthropic support through our annual fundraising programs and celebrate our 50th Anniversary in 2018!

3. Work in partnership with our Head of School and her Leadership Team to continue to ensure the fiscal health and well-being of the school. This goal includes creating a long-term and more structured process across the institution for identifying, assessing, and managing opportunities and challenges that could affect the school’s achievement of its mission.

4. Ensure the school sustains outstanding School leadership through strong communication and collaboration as well as Board leadership by continuing our commitment to maintaining a Board comprised of Trustees who have the skills and attributes needed to meet our immediate and long-term goals.   

As a best practice, every three to five years our Board engages in a process to set strategic direction for the school.  We are at this point now and very soon will be communicating with you about our process and how you can share your input as we identify key questions and priorities. 

On behalf of the entire Board, we thank you for your continued support of this extraordinary school and wish you and your family happy holidays.
