Comprehensive Plan

What is Comprehensive Planning
Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) requires Comprehensive Planning, which is a continuous process used to ensure that all students are achieving at high levels. All Local Educational Agencies (LEA) can create better environments so that more students are successful. Continuous planning of Local Educational Agencies is essential to providing increased student performance and quality results. Innovative, exemplary, and research-based programs, coupled with staff development, focused and aligned resources, and public participation in planning, are critical factors in districts that demonstrate continuous growth.

Chapter 4 of PA Code stipulates a planning requirement for every LEA in Pennsylvania that is submitted on a three-year cycle.
