Comprehensive Planning

PA Department of Education Logo

Planning for continuous improvement of leadership, teaching and learning is critically important to ensuring that all students have access to a world-class education that prepares them for college, career, and life.  Pennsylvania’s cycle of improvement is grounded in evidence-based approaches that can both improve student outcomes and increase return on investment, as resources are spent on programs and practices likely to have a positive impact.  Opportunities to create, assess, and adjust throughout the cycle empowers local education agencies and schools to engage all stakeholders in pursuit of a shared vision for student success.

The district was notified on November 26, 2019 that the Chapter 4 required components of the Penn Hills SD have been reviewed and accepted by the PA Department of Education for implementation during the July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2023 cycle.  The approved plan can be reviewed by clicking the link below.
