Every three (3) years, each school district must develop and submit to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) a Special Education Plan, which becomes a part of the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan, which encompasses Academic Standards and Assessment, Professional Education, Teacher Induction, Special Education, Educational Technology, and Student Services into one, will guide our continuous improvement efforts to identify future goals and improve educational opportunities and achievement for all students.
2018-2021 Plan Development
A committee of stakeholders is currently developing the Comprehensive Plan that will guide the district for the next three years. The Committee began meeting in April of 2017 and will complete its work in September or October of 2017. The Plan will then be available for public inspection for 28 days prior to Board approval in November of 2017.
