2018-19 PACS EDUCATIONAL PLAN
What is the PACS Educational Plan?
The Pulaski Academy & Central School District Educational Plan is developed annually to evaluate and formulate programs, policies, and procedures that increase opportunity, engagement or achievement for students and improve other measures of success as determined by research, the PACS Educational Plan Committees, and the Board of Education.
The PACS Educational Plan and planning process will help keep us working together and focused on the “right work”. It is also intended to educate us about what effective schools look like.
This process encourages participation from students, faculty, staff, administrators, parents, and the community and approaches school improvement in an open and systematic way.
What does the Educational Plan process look like?
The Board of Education reviews and revises its Philosophy Statement, reviews previous PACS Educational Plan initiatives, and establishes priority areas to begin the Educational Plan process.
Four Educational Plan Committees conduct the work of developing the plan. Administrative, Faculty-Staff, Student, and Parent-Community Committees each:
- Review District priority areas
- Study relevant district data, surveys, and educational research
- Identify areas of focus for the committee
- Develop initiatives to support District priorities
What are the Board of Education district priority areas and action steps for 2019-20?
Engage all stakeholders in school improvement.
Improve district communications, programming, and operations.
Action Steps: Develop a Communications Goals & Plan; Conduct an Academic Program Review; Conduct a District Finance Review; Conduct a District Operations Review; Conduct a School Safety Review; Implement a school improvement process that engages all stakeholders
