Join Forces to Shape PVSD's Future

PVSD Develops New Comprehensive Plan
Every three years, school districts are required by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to create a comprehensive plan. The plan, which is data-driven and research-based, is meant to facilitate collaboration and communication, promote shared practices and resources, and ensure that all district stakeholders are aware of and are working toward common goals. In short, a comprehensive plan helps "set the course" for the district over the next three years.

Perkiomen Valley School District has completed a draft of a new comprehensive plan. On Oct. 1, the School Board approved the draft, which is now available for public review for a period of 28 days. Following public review, the Board must approve a final version of the plan and then it will be submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) by November 30, 2018. A Steering Committee made up of School Board members, administrators, teachers, parents, students and community members met over the last year to address various overarching components of the plan, such as the mission statement and vision. Smaller subcommittees were formed to address the four plan components of special education, professional education, safe and supportive schools, and teaching and learning.

Draft Mission and Vision Statements ....
Since November 2017, our Steering Committee, Administrative Team, and other stakeholder groups have been working diligently to develop a draft mission and vision statement.  After brainstorming sessions at our first Steering Committee meeting, we worked in groups to create draft mission statements.  Those drafts have been revised several times throughout the year after receiving input from students, staff, community members, administrators, and School Board members.  The current version of the mission and vision statements, and tagline are shown below.
