In January of 2022, the Board of Directors at League School unanimously voted to adopt a strategic plan to guide League through the year 2025 and beyond. As a first at League, there will be a three-year roadmap to position the school for future growth and continued excellence in educating students with autism.
The ten-month planning process was completed by a team representing a cross section of the administration, staff, the Board, and Friends of League facilitated by the SOAR Management Consulting Group. Additional staff and board members participated in sub-committees to develop the goals and objectives created for the plan.
The objective was to provide an honest assessment of the school’s current position within the field of autism education while identifying League School’s current strengths and areas for growth as an organization. The collaborative effort resulted in a long-term vision for the organization with measurable goals, objectives, and action plans to achieve growth without sacrificing the excellence for which we strive.
Providing the best possible programs and services for the students we serve remains the core mission of League School. The strategic plan includes goals for expanding and enhancing the Vocational, Academic, Transition, and Residential programs for our students.
A COMMITMENT TO OUR EMPLOYEES
Our teachers and staff remain the lifeblood of the organization. By working to increase compensation and benefits while providing career guidance within a positive work culture, we hope to retain employees while attracting highly qualified candidates to fill open positions.
By developing a Marketing Department, League School will increase our outreach and expand awareness of the hidden gem that is League School in the local community, throughout Massachusetts, and across the country.
SECURE OUR FUTURE
League School is committed to maintaining solid financial stability while growing the resources through fundraising and philanthropy to provide our students with enhancements to their educational experience that can’t be provided through tuition alone.
A highlight of the plan is a new career education center to be developed and built at the Moosehill property. This exciting project will enhance the programs we currently offer while allowing us to serve additional students. The center will give our vocational students real world experience on campus before they step out into the community. With plans in the preliminary stages, some ideas discussed include:
• A retail café/garden store
• An expanded garden and greenhouse to support the café
• Classrooms for learning entry-level skills within the building trades: plumbing, electrical, and carpentry
• Classroom space for learning computer skills, including data entry and coding
• The Vocational Center for clerical and office skills that’s now housed in the main school building
• Outdoor space with an athletic field and basketball court
Updates on the status and progression of the Strategic Plan will be posted to this site on a regular basis.
