District Planning

The Comprehensive Strategic Plan contains the District’s mission and vision statements and details the District’s shared values as we work to provide a quality education for our students.

In the fall of 2019, the district administration team reviewed the Mission, Vision and Core Values and revised them to better reflect our district’s guiding practices/beliefs. These beliefs form the foundation for the development of our proposed 2020-2023 comprehensive plan for the East Pennsboro Area School District. 

The 2020-2023 Comprehensive Plan was developed through the work of a committee whose members represent school staff, parents, community members, and business representatives. Continuous Comprehensive planning of all schools 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 schools that demonstrate continuous growth.
