About Comprehensive Planning
Comprehensive Planning facilitates communication and collaboration, promotes shared practices and resources, and ensures that every stakeholder is working toward common goals. Additionally, Comprehensive Planning assists local education agencies (school districts, charter schools, area vocational technical schools/career and technical centers, and intermediate units) to create and manage a continuous, comprehensive plan to submit to the Department in order to maintain compliance with state and federal mandates.
The Lampeter-Strasburg School District Comprehensive Planning Committee was formed in October, 2012. Members of this committee reflected the many stakeholders of the school community, including parents, community representatives, a local business representative, teachers representing elementary, middle, and high school education, District and school level administrators, educational specialists, instructional coaches, and School Board members. Each school building formed building-level committees to create building-level actions plans aligned with the District.
The goal of the process was to review core foundational data and complete a needs assessment for each building to determine specific areas of strength and areas in need of improvement. All building strengths and areas in need of improvement were shared at the District level and the strengths and areas in need of improvement were established for the District based on each building’s data. The District carefully evaluated these needs and established goals and action steps for improvement. These goals and action steps were shared with building level teams, which in turn developed goals and action steps to meet their needs aligned with the District.
The District Comprehensive Planning Committee met three times, and each building-level team met twice. Building-level meetings were held between District-level meetings. The first District level meeting focused on the District profile, including mission, vision, and shared values. The second meeting focused on a review of each building’s needs assessment and the creation of the District’s needs assessment based on the needs of each school building. The final meeting was focused on evaluation of the District and building-level action plans.
