5YSP Ad hoc committee
Earlier last year, the Glen Rock BOE established the Ad hoc Five Year Strategic Planning Committee (5YSP) for the purposes of developing a financial strategic plan to assist the district with identifying and achieving its goals with respect to the district mission, vision and direction. The work of the committee will be shared on this webpage and related documents can be found in the file section at the bottom of the page. Anyone interested in sharing their thoughts on the direction of the district is welcome to email the BOE at 5YSP@glenrocknj.org
