Westerly Stories


Make Sure Your Voice Is Heard

Dear Westerly Families,

If I did not have the opportunity to connect with you on Thursday, Happy Belated Valentine's Day! The campus was so abuzz with giggles, love, enthusiasm, and creative energy (most likely influenced by a bit o'chocolate and candy) and I could not have been more excited to see the students' celebrations of their friendships. In the spirit of this Hallmark Holiday, I'm asking for a moment of your time and mental energy to help show Westerly some love. As you may know, we are embarking on our Strategic Planning process in order to expand the educational experiences for our students and greater community. This transparent and inclusive process includes:

  • A survey of all Westerly stakeholders: faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, alumni parents, and trustees

  • A steering committee analysis of the responses, along with other reports, to develop a draft of strategic themes

  • Formation of  a strategic planning committee consisting of multiple stakeholders from across the community to examine and flesh out the strategic themes

  • Development of  a draft of the strategic plan based on the strategic planning committee's recommendations

  • Strategic Plan presentation to the Board of Trustees for adoption in May 2019

  • Celebration of Strategic Plan with Westerly community in September 2019
