Comprehensive Planning

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 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 Comprehensive Planning web application’s purpose is to serve as a single, streamlined, systematic, comprehensive planning process and plan management system for LEAs and schools within the Commonwealth.

Features of the online Comprehensive Planning web application include:

  • Single district level plan instead of six separate plan reports
  • School level data analysis is shared to the district level plan
  • District strategies and action steps influence school level planning
  • Single site for stakeholders district-wide to view district & all school plans
  • Streamlined user roles
