Comprehensive Planning for Pennsylvania School Districts
Comprehensive Planning is a continuous process used to ensure that all students are achieving at high levels.  All districts can create better environments so that more students are successful.  Continuous planning of public districts 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.
This process will replace the traditional Strategic Planning used by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Comprehensive Planning Training for Phase 1 Districts

As a Phase One District, we will be starting Comprehensive Planning Training this summer.
The training will be at the IU Office Center on Thursday, August 14, 2014 in Room J (Lower Level).
Please send from your district - the key people that I will be working with during the 2014-2015 school year.

What you can expect during training:
  • Sign in begins at 8:30AM with a light breakfast and then training starts at 9:00 AM by video streaming from PDE. A light lunch will be served at 12 noon.  Starting at 1:00 - the time will be reserved your district team to work together. This will allow you district the opportunity to ask additional questions and receive further assistance from the trainers.
  • Please bring your laptop to the session as all “handouts” will be electronically dispersed.
  • Please create a Portal Account if you do not have one: https://www.login.state.pa.us/login/Register.aspx
  • We will be using the CP training site to explain the process (http://training.paplanning.org).
    However, if you want to access the web application through your district’s account, you must be granted access by your district’s “Comp Plan—Local Administrator.” This is done by your business office.
