Comprehensive Planning is a single, streamlined, yet systemic, process for school districts within the Commonwealth. Comprehensive Planning facilitates communication and collaboration, promotes shared practices and resources, and ensures every stakeholder is working toward common goals. The process assists districts in managing a plan to maintain compliance with state and federal mandates.

These individuals will be circulating through the District to gather input from stakeholders. The ideas and suggestions generated through this process will help us develop our priorities and goals. If you have not been contacted and would like to contribute your input to this process, contact Ms. Sheri Piveteau at email@example.com or 610-369-7548.
