Dear Pennsbury Community Stakeholder:
Thank you for taking the time to review the material presented on the pages of this website. Our intent is to provide information that can serve as a strong foundation for important home-school partnerships as well as active community engagement.
I am a proud son of two former educators. My father was a high school English teacher for over three decades, while my mother served as a teacher and administrator at the elementary level before committing her energies to support students with special learning needs at the central administrative level. My parents were not only champions for the children they served; they were also champions for my brother and me. They instilled in us the importance of getting a great education and reminded us that our effort would matter in that endeavor. I have tried to pass that on to my two children, and I will work hard to ensure our system provides the same challenge and support for our students as well.
My beliefs are a perfect match for a District that continues to promote academic success and resiliency in all students by ensuring:
- Every student will become his/her best intellectual and ethical self.
- Every student will persevere to reach his/her highest social, emotional, and academic potential.
- Every educator will inspire students to strive for academic excellence and strength of character.
- Every school will develop engaged, professional learning communities to support the growth mindset.
The new 2016-2019 Comprehensive Plan for the District recognizes this and strategizes means of continuous improvement. (To view the entire Comprehensive Plan, click here
.) Any new beginning serves as an opportunity, a catalyst, to renew our purpose and design goals aligned to accomplish our highest priorities. To that end, we are focusing on three important areas for continuous improvement, including:
- Excellence and Equity
- Future Ready Schools
- Middle School Scheduling
If you’re a member of the Pennsbury community, I look forward to the many opportunities we will have to get acquainted and work together toward a promising and exciting future for Pennsbury. If you are a visitor from another community outside of Pennsbury, we welcome you to further explore our website for information about our School District.
