Plan By Design

 In late January, a Citizen Advisory Committee was formed by the Board to bring recommendations back to the Board on ways to make improvements for the Claysburg-Kimmel School District.  The Committee continued to meet throughout the spring.  A recommendation to hire the Pennsylvania Leadership Development Center (PLDC) to guide the District through a Plan by Design process was made in April.  The Board approved the recommendation.

In May, PLDC consultants conducted the Plan by Design process with the help of 47 members of the collective school community.  The process took two days and was very productive.  From those 2 days the PLDC consultants took the notes and began to write and collate the information.

Prior to the August Board, PLDC presented a working document for the leadership team as well as the Board to continue to develop for the Claysburg-Kimmel School District.  Below is a link to this working document.


Plan By Design


A timeline has been established to have the Board discuss the working document, as well as to afford the leadership team the opportunity to write 12-month and 24-month goals.  As we work through the document, the Board will be approving sections that will become the “living” roadmap for the District’s future.

After reading the document, if you have questions, concerns or suggestions feel free to contact me at 

Thank you for your time and interest in the Claysburg-Kimmel School District.
