Editor’s note: This press release was provided by the Pelham School District.

UPDATE: , The open forum originally planned for Thursday morning has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Friday, Feb. 1 from 8-9 am in the PMHS Library, room 105E.

The Board of Education has embarked on the process of developing the District’s next Strategic Plan that will establish our goals and guide our work over the next 3-5 years. As we begin to build this plan, it is important that the Board hear directly from residents across the Pelham community.

We invite you to attend our open forum on Thursday, Jan. 31 from from 7-8:30 pm in room 105E of the PMHS Library to share your ideas on the areas of focus and bodies of work that you believe will have the most impact for our students and our organization over the next few years. These forums will be moderated by Judith Wilson, the District’s strategic planning consultant.

Review the current Strategic Plan

Shortly, we will also be distributing online surveys that will provide another channel for feedback on our educational system. Your responses to the surveys will be important and greatly appreciated.  Over the coming months, the data and information gleaned from surveys and other community engagement opportunities will be reviewed by Ms. Wilson, the Board’s Strategic Planning Committee, and the full Board of Education as we develop a road map to guide the Pelham Public Schools to even greater heights over the next several years.
