Comprehensive Planning is a web-based framework for thoughtful data-driven and research-based district and school planning. Comprehensive Planning facilitates communication and collaboration, promotes shared practices and resources, and ensures that every stakeholder is working toward common goals. Additionally, Comprehensive Planning assists local education agencies (school districts, charter schools, area vocational technical schools/career and technical centers, and intermediate units) to create and manage a continuous, comprehensive plan to submit to the Department in order to maintain compliance with state and federal mandate.
The revised Chapter 4 specifies planning requirements for school entities. Every six (6) years a school entity must develop and submit for approval a Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan replaces the following reports: Academic Standards and Assessment, Professional Education, Teacher Induction, Educational Technology and Student Services in one “Comprehensive” report that will serve to guide the district over the next six years.
