The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) requires all school districts in the state to develop a formal written Strategic Plan. The Comprehensive Plan will guide our District through the year 2019 by establishing a set of goals focused on future District needs and expectations and identifying and validating community, staff, and student needs and interests. The development of the plan is a vital step in providing direction for the Monessen School District in making critical educational decisions for our students.
The goals and objectives identified in the initiative were developed through a collaborative process composed of members of the professional and administrative staff to create specific strategies and action plans necessary in achieving these goals. The technical committees defined by PDE include Academic Standards and Assessment, including Graduation Requirements, Educational Technology, Professional Education, Special Education, Student Services, and Teacher Induction. The proposed plan provides a comprehensive roadmap to the future for public education in the City of Monessen.
