Bensalem Township School District has its eye on where it wants to be in three years.
And officials have the paperwork to show for it.
The 96-page comprehensive plan, which replaces the district’s traditional strategic plan, will be on the district’s Web site beginning Thursday until Nov. 20.
During Wednesday’s school board meeting Superintendent David Baugh shared that the district’s three goals to achieve by 2017–closing the “achievement and access gaps;” improving communication and engagement; and improving systems and procedures–stem from five main concerns of the district and community.
By 2017, the district hopes to:
- Further develop its instructional program to ensure that students achieve greater success
- Implement procedures to increase the district’s accountability
- Improve marketing, branding and overall community engagement through stepped up social media efforts “at the classroom, building and district.”
- Become a paperless district
- Improve overall systems and procedures
“Each action plan has strategies and accompanying action steps,” Baugh said.
The comprehensive plan is slated for board adoption during the Nov. 26 meeting. From there, it will be submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
The district will begin revising the process in 2016 and 2017, he said.
