PV Begins Development of New 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 is in the process of developing a new comprehensive plan, which must 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 has been formed and will continue meeting to address various overarching components of the plan, such as the mission statement and vision. Smaller subcommittees have also been formed to address the four plan components of special education, professional education, safe and supportive schools, and teaching and learning. 

We hope to provide helpful information throughout this process to our stakeholders in our school district and community.  Please click through the buttons on the right to learn more about the components of our Comprehensive Plan. Our existing comprehensive plan has also been posted for reference. 

Upcoming Meetings ....

First Steps toward a Mission ....
At our first Steering Committee meeting, we spent time researching mission statements and discussing what we envision for our students in the future.  We completed a brainstorming activity where members of the committee shared words to portray that mission.  Below is a picture of the AnswerGarden that was created from member input.  The larger the word, the more often it was shared, therefore demonstrating a higher importance.  This activity was a starting point.  We will use these thoughts to create a draft mission statement to share with the Steering Committee at our next meeting.
