Strategic Planning Process

During the 2023-24 school year, Downingtown Area School District will develop a community-informed educational strategic plan.

A strategic plan is a comprehensive document that outlines the goals, objectives and strategies of a school district. It serves as a roadmap for the district's future direction and provides a framework for decision-making and resource allocation. A well-crafted strategic plan helps to guide and unify the efforts of all stakeholders. 

The ultimate goal of our school system remains the same: learning, growth and success for every student.

Our approach will be student-centered, focused on aligning a unity of purpose and will engage a diverse group of voices and perspectives.


Join us in shaping the future direction of DASD by participating in a strategic planning team.
