Advisory Committees to the Board
Strategic Accountability Committee
Ross Montessori is in the midst of an exciting strategic planning process under the guidance of consultant Jan Thirlby. A committee comprised of parents, teachers, staff, and board members has worked together to determine a vision of what Ross should become in thirty years time. This committee is charged with creating the long and short-term goals that are needed for Ross Montessori to achieve its renewed vision. This committee will also serve to hold the school “accountable” to its long and short-term goals, and thus will also assume the role of the committee formerly known as the “School Accountability Committee.” Strategic Accountability Committee establishes consistency in the improvement process and holds the school responsible for its own established goals. Quarterly updates are provided to all stakeholders.
