Planning for the 2022-2023 School Year

Parents and community stakeholders are encouraged to get involved in the educational planning process for the upcoming school year. The planning process began earlier this semester, and feedback on this year has been garnered from parents, staff, and secondary students in preparation for the 2022-2023 school year.

Stakeholder meetings started April 27th and will continue throughout the month of May. The comprehensive needs assessment process reviews multiple data points then identifies and prioritizes needs for the upcoming year. Data collected will assess the impact of strategies implemented to improve student achievement, determine whether additional improvement is needed in various areas, and help school and district leaders focus on overall success of schoolwide programs inclusive of stakeholder engagement. 

Each school will analyze the data collected and develop a plan for continuous improvement targeted areas such as student achievement, curriculum and instruction, professional development, parent and family engagement, and school context and organization.

For specific information regarding the improvement process and/or planning for the upcoming year, please contact your child's school principal or contact Dr. Deatrice White, Federal Programs Director at dwhite@northpanolaschools.org or call (662) 487-2305.
