    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Dubbed a “Learning Laboratory” in its founding years, San Carlos Charter Learning Center (CLC)

    has historically been a place of new ideas in education. As the first charter school established in

    the state of California, CLC educators embodied the founding vision of the charter movement:

    to provide an alternative to traditional public education. School leadership was encouraged to

    support creativity, educators were empowered to test new approaches, and families were

    inspired to contribute to a community experiment. While CLC has remained a high-quality

    alternative educational option for San Carlos families, in recent years, organizational learning has

    become fragmented.

    Current trends in K-12 education align with CLC’s founding educational philosophies and also

    serve as a springboard for growth and opportunity. These trends include:

    - Emphasis on problem-based and project-based learning; - Heightened awareness around social-emotional development; and - Recognized need for social consciousness.

    Looking forward to the next five years, a team of founding members and visionary young

    educators is positioned to unleash new meaning for educators and learners and re-emerge as

    pioneers in the charter movement. CLC families are hungry for direction, and, for the first time,

    CLC will design and occupy its own space.

    The 2017-2022 Strategic Plan addresses key identity questions, relays strategic priorities, and

    creates systems to support experimentation and sharing of new ideas internally and beyond.

    Through this strategic planning process, CLC has committed its resources to better support:

    - individual thinkers who reflect on their learning; - educators who share a cohesive understanding of teaching and curriculum; - families who actively contribute to the CLC community; - and education leaders who wish to inspire others in the charter movement and beyond.

    The Strategic Plan should serve as a guiding framework for CLC to provide clear direction and

    priorities. Ultimately, the Strategic Plan is a foundational tool to help drive growth and strategic

    decision-making at CLC. Although it lists concrete goals for the next five years, it is intended to

    be used as a flexible document. As new information and opportunities arise, the Strategic Plan

    should be reevaluated and adapted to meet CLC’s current needs. With frequent use and

    integration into day-to-day practice and activities, it will inherently become a foundational

    document for CLC, promoting ownership and accountability for all stakeholders.

  • We are all learners. We are all educators.

    VISION 2022 The foundational philosophies, beliefs, and goals that are essential to CLC’s identity and

    operations are captured in the following statements:

    VISION STATEMENT CLC learners go into the world as curious, socially-conscious, and creative independent thinkers,

    inspired to make positive and authentic contributions to society.

    CLC educators bravely try new things, and succeed or fail, share reflections with education

    leaders locally and beyond.

    MISSION STATEMENT CLC fosters an inclusive, learner-centric environment that draws from the whole community to

    support all of our children as learners and people.

    The core components of our approach:

    • Expose and support learners to solve real-world problems • Encourage collaboration • Emphasize social emotional learning • Promote reflection and continuous growth • Inspire advocacy for self and others

  • We are all learners. We are all educators.

    STRATEGIC PLAN OUTLINE

    CORE GOALS AND STRATEGIES Over the next three to five years, CLC learners will experience greater ownership of their learning,

    will be challenged to solve problems in a variety of contexts using new, relevant mediums, and

    provided the opportunity to engage with diverse communities. CLC educators (staff and

    leadership) will be focused on capturing and articulating their practice and effectively sharing

    key findings with one another and the broader education community. CLC families will continue

    to be active partners of the school, with clear expectations, guidance, and training on how to

    communicate, support, and engage with the community.

    Specifically, CLC will aim to achieve the following core goals, utilizing the following strategies

    and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to gauge progress:
