Strategic Plan

Dear Members of the Donoho Community,

Over the past few months, a committed group of trustees, parents, administrators, faculty, and students has worked to develop a new Strategic Plan for Donoho. Ted Lingenheld, a consultant with School Strategies and Solutions, has guided our efforts. We are happy with the results and look forward to using the plan as we move Donoho forward.

Through the process, our Strategic Planning Committee developed four sub-committees to study and develop goals to address the needs of Donoho.
  1. Educational Programs- Chair- Russ Connell
  2. Admissions, Marketing, and Communication- Co-Chairs- Melissa Smyly and Anna Taylor
  3. Facilities- Chair- Kendall Howell
  4. Finance- Chair- Dale Walker
The core of our plan lies in the output of each sub-committee. We would like to thank the four sub-committee chairs for their extraordinary commitment to this arduous process. The chairs led their respective committees to produce detailed goals and strategies related to their respective areas of study.

The culminating goal of our strategic plan is to put in place a road map that will elevate The Donoho School as a premier independent school in the Southeast. Therefore, the committee asks that the Head of School and Board of Trustees be accountable to the plan and to the timetable, while continually updating the Donoho community on the progress and implementation of each goal.

We are confident the plan will support our efforts to provide an outstanding, comprehensive 21st Century education to the students at Donoho.
