A Message from the Superintendent

This message appeared in the December 2019 issue of the Bethel Park Chronicles. 

The 2019-2020 school year got off to a fast start, and it is amazing to consider we are almost at the halfway point of the year!

I have had the opportunity to visit all of our schools and spend some time in classrooms, and I have been impressed with the quality of instruction and the educational opportunities our students are experiencing. It is an exciting time for education as the Bethel Park School District continues to provide our students with the tools to successfully prepare them for their futures.

As I mentioned in the August issue of this publication, our theme this year is “Digging Deeper for Student Achievement,” and our goals for the 2019-2020 school year go beyond district-wide objectives. This year we have asked our schools to create school-specific SMART goals. SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely. The goals focus on four areas: Project Based Learning/21st Century Skills, Reflective Teaching, Student Supports, and Family Engagement/Safe and Supportive Schools.

I want to commend our Principals for taking the initiative to set these goals for their schools. The graphics below shos the individual school’s goals for the year. We have also posted them on each school’s website, should you want to refer back to them throughout the school year.

I am looking forward to attending the outstanding holiday concerts that our students will be performing this school year. The students and their teachers work very hard to present these quality performances at no cost to the attendees, so I encourage you to join me in getting into the holiday spirit at one or more of these outstanding events.

I also want to extend holiday greetings to everyone in the Bethel Park School District. We look forward to welcoming everybody back to school on Monday, January 6.

It continues to be an honor to serve you and your children.
