Strategic Plan Kick-Off Celebrates Allentown School District Future

On Thursday, November 30, 2023 the Allentown School District introduced the Strategic Plan Process at a Kick-Off celebration at Lehigh Valley Health Network–Mack Boulevard.

The Strategic Plan is a complex and comprehensive practice where multiple community and school representatives analyze data sources to identify priorities, set goals, establish strategies, and align resources to improve student performance and outcomes.

At the Strategic Plan Kick-Off Event, Superintendent Carol D. Birks led the audience of school leadership, principals, teachers, families, students, community partners, and business professionals through a spirited presentation that showcased the steps and procedures to be followed.

“The Strategic Planning process is the beginning of an exciting new chapter where we will honor our past, foster relationships, and take stock of our successes to capitalize on the opportunities to reimagine our beloved Allentown School District to support all of our learners,”  Dr. Carol D. Birks, Allentown School Superintendent & Chief Executive Officer 

Throughout the Strategic Plan Process, Allentown will also conduct an Equity Audit to ensure that the District’s priorities are rooted in equity and access for all students. To complete the plan, the Steering Committee will enlist input from a variety of stakeholders who will engage in collaborative decision-making to define a Portrait of a Graduate and outline the actions needed to improve the educational experience for the Allentown School District Learning Community.

The course of action before the Steering Committee will begin at its first meeting on Wednesday, December 13, 2023, with future Steering Committee Meetings scheduled for Tuesday, January 9, 2024; Tuesday, February 13, 2024; Tuesday, March 12, 2024; Tuesday, April 9, 2024; and Tuesday, April 23, 2024.
