Join Forces to Shape PVSD's Future

Community Meeting Held to Determine Goals
We recently held a community meeting to solicit input into the values and goals to Shape the Future of Perkiomen Valley.  A great group of community members, district staff, and students were present.  Group members shared their thoughts and passions about the future and what school should look and feel like.  We also began to brainstorm goals within the areas of Teaching and Learning, Safe and Supportive Schools, Fiscal Responsibility, College and Career Readiness, and Community Partnerships.  Our Steering Committee will continue to meet in the coming weeks to review the draft mission and vision statements, and continue work on our shared values and goals.  Many thanks to everyone who attended for sharing their Super Powers!
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 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. 
Draft Mission Statement ....
Our Steering Committee has been working diligently to develop a draft mission statement.  After brainstorming sessions at our first meeting, which resulted in the AnswerGarden pictured below, we worked in groups to create draft mission statements.  We have since taken the four drafts and combined them into our first version of a new mission statement for PV.  Check it out below.  We will continue to work with the Steering Committee to finalize this statement that will set the course for our District!
