Strategic Plan

The Community Arts School's work is guided by a Strategic Plan that ensures our programs fulfill our mission statement and support the needs of our community. Completed in 2016, the development of this plan was led by a committee of faculty, staff, and local stakeholders, while also reflecting input gathered from participant surveys, parent focus groups, and one-on-one interviews.
