    Introduction to the 2013-2016 Strategic Plan

    A Strategic Plan can be broadly defined as a homogeneous, comprehensive and structured set of guiding principles and operational actions aimed at the ongoing future improvement of the performance and overall quality of a School, and at the optimal allocation of its physical and human assets and of their mutual interactions.

    • The production of a Strategic Plan is a synergic effort!

    • Main actors:

    • Strategic Planning Committee

    • School Staff and Faculty

    • Board of Directors

    • Students and families

    • Relevant external stakeholders (donors, local industries and corporations, alumni, etc.)

    • Objectives of the Strategic Planning Committee for 2012-2013

    • Drafting of the ISF Strategic Plan for 2013-2016.

    • Creation and online publication of a web-based database for the communication of the Strategic Plan to the ISF Community, and for its efficient monitoring and modification by the SP team.

    School [Re]location Report

    Meet the Board – November 15, 2012


    To move or not

    To Move or Not?

    • The School [Re]location Task Force was formed in Spring 2011 to determine a new location for ISF.

    • Our assumption was that we have outgrown the current spaces.

      • We want to provide an ideal educational experience, our student body is robust, and we believe we have further potential to expand.

    • We would also prefer to have both Upper and Lower Schools in a Single Campus.


    Process

    Process

    • The members of the Task Force visited and evaluated approximately 40 sites throughout Florence.

    • Additional sites in outlying comuni were also identified:

      • Bagno a Ripoli

      • Scandicci

      • Fiesole

    • We evaluated these initial 40 sites using a series of criteria that included:

      • Cost of acquisition or rental

      • Cost of renovation

      • Suitability of spaces

      • Zoning

      • Political factors


    Board identified priorities

    Board-Identified Priorities


    Where are we now

    Where Are We Now?

    • We have identified several very interesting possibilities and eliminated others.

      • Most of them we won’t identify yet because the negotiations are sensitive and ongoing.

      • We are participating in a public process in Bagno a Ripoli with the stated intent of establishing a new school for ISF there.

    • Most of the interesting possibilities appear to be feasible only with a significant capital campaign.

      • We need to investigate the feasibility of this.

    • We have recently realized that our existing facilities may be more flexible than we thought.

      • Additional developable space at Villa Gattaia.

      • Possibility of moving some grades to Villa Tavernulle.


    Ongoing process

    Ongoing Process

    • Feasibility

      • We are determining the functional, political and economic feasibility of each site, including our present locations.

      • We are determining the feasibility of undertaking a capital campaign.

    • Decision-making

      • Depending on the outcome of the feasibility, we may wind up with a single outcome, or a “phased” decision.


    Timeframe

    Timeframe

    • The process has taken longer than originally intended.

    • Our current intention is to decide within 2012.

      • If we decide to stay where we are, we would expect to do work beginning in the summer of 2013.

      • If we decide to move, the different solutions carry different move-in dates.

        • Building a new building is a much lengthier process than renovating an existing one.

    • We will keep the entire community informed and involvedvia the ISF website and newsletter.
