PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pleasantville School District is embarking on a months-long process to develop a Five Year Strategic Plan.
The Pleasantville Board of Education established an overarching goal to develop the plan that "will provide a framework for District decision-making to meet the future needs of its students in all areas," representatives said.
Superintendent of Schools Mary Fox-Alter and High School Principal Daniel McCann provided information at the board's Jan. 14 meeting.
The process begins at the end of the month with the creation and training of a 25-member Strategic Planning Team consisting of Board members, administrators, teachers, parents, community members, and students. This team will develop a draft plan that establishes the District’s beliefs, mission, parameters, objectives, and strategies and sets the foundation for research and cost-benefit analyses by 10-20 member Action Teams, one for each strategy, school officials said.
In June, the Strategic Planning Team will review and agree on the Action Plans presented by the Action Teams and recommend their approval to the Superintendent of Schools.
Fox-Alter said that she and the Board of Education “look forward to working with the community on the development of this plan,” noting that community involvement “is essential” for the success of “this exciting process," according to a release.
