The School District Embarks On…
… A Strategic Planning Process
The School District is entering into a major restructuring phase with the district’s new superintendent, Dr. Arlene Ackerman, who is seeking to establish herself as pushing for change and innovation. The district has also stated that it is seriously looking for community involvement in this process. Ackerman and the School Reform Commission have called for a series of focus groups and working groups to guide the planning process. This is a really great opportunity for parents, students, and community members to get their voices heard in a way that is usually impossible. We need everyone who has a stake in Philadelphia education to come out and make sure their presence is felt! PSU is one of the community groups that’s going to be involved in this planning process. We will keep you posted on dates and times of these meetings.
