PPCSD Blueprint for Success - Strategic Plan

Our Blueprint for Excellence is the result of the strategic planning sessions that were held with our Board of Education, Leadership Team, staff, parents and community members. We utilized feedback gathered from the community this past fall as we worked to develop a plan that will help us continue to grow and achieve as we strive for excellence in all that we do.

This plan will be the backbone for what we do. It will serve as a roadmap in our efforts to connect with each child and family while enhancing our connections as a school and a community.

We are working on the final revisions to the plan, and are excited to reveal the final Blueprint for Excellence to the community in March. Stay tuned - more details to follow in the coming weeks!
