Accelerating Growth Plan
An overall goal for the 2022-2023 school year is to accelerate student growth by strengthening our multi-tiered system of scaffolded supports (MTSS) in each building. Each school will develop a plan for accelerating growth using the following three strategies; Focus on High-Quality Academics, Foster Supportive Learning Environments and Establish Healthy Systems Conditions.
Comprehensive Literacy Plan
AGSD is committed to ensuring that all students achieve the highest levels of literacy performance. In order to accomplish this goal, AGSD embarked upon developing a comprehensive literacy plan during the 2018-2019 school year. The plan is modeled after the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s “Pennsylvania State Literacy Plan” (PaSLP) and embodies a theme of “Illuminating Literacy.”

The overall intent of the Facilities Strategic Initiative is to evaluate the current building infrastructure and develop a plan for the future aligned with the mission and vision of Avon Grove School District. The plan includes best uses for the existing facilities and sites to meet the needs of students, based on the strategic plan, the educational programs and enrollment projections. In addition, the plan includes renovation and maintenance needs for the current buildings as well as the potential for future expansion of facilities based upon the educational goals of the district.

Strategic Communications Plan
In 2015, communications were identified as a core need of the District and since that time, have remained a strategic focus. As a result of a 2020-2021 communications audit, AGSD is implementing a three-year Strategic Communication Plan with core areas of focus and recommended actions meant to strategically position AGSD for the future.
