The Lampeter-Strasburg School District Comprehensive Planning Committee was formed during the 2019-2020 school year. 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. A committee from each school building created building-level action plans aligned with the District's plan.
The District Comprehensive Planning Committee provided additional feedback during the 2020-2021 school year related to the plan's goals and action steps. The goal of the process was to review core foundational data and complete a needs assessment for the District based on strengths, areas of need, and the shared values of students, parents, staff, and the community. All building strengths and areas of need were shared at the District level and established for the District based on each building’s data. Appropriate goals and action steps were developed as a result. The District carefully evaluated the findings to establish goals and action steps for improvement to support each building. The process provided alignment between building and District goals.
