Strategic Planning

The School District of Haverford Township embarked on a strategic planning process that will help chart the district’s course for the next 3 - 5 years. Through the strategic planning process we carefully reviewed the district’s mission and vision with a focus upon what we know about how students learn and what those learning experiences can and should include. Goals, objectives and an action plan for achieving the vision were developed.

The District asked its constituents:

• Which goals and strategies will help us to fulfill our mission?
• In what ways can resources be best directed?
• How can we best maximize our capacity for student and adult learning?

Haverford used stakeholder surveys, information gathered in both small and large group forums, school data, trends, and a review of key issues to help the district set goals and a leadership course for the future.

The District’s Strategic Planning began in the fall of the 2019-20 school year.

GOAL 1: Prepare Contemporary Citizens Modernize and expand  learning experiences to prepare students as critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and innovative designers within a complex global society.

GOAL 2: Social/Emotional Wellness Produce a community of empathetic and resilient learners with skills to socially and emotionally flourish.

GOAL 3: Diversity and Inclusion Establish a culturally diverse and inclusive educational experience that develops socio-cultural proficiency.
