'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Penn Hills School District is a Phase I pilot district for the state's new comprehensive planning process. This three-year Comprehensive Plan replaces the six-year Strategic Plan previously required by Chapter 4 of the Pennsylvania School Code.

This new comprehensive plan will be utilized by staff and administration as a living document for guiding and focusing efforts to make the Penn Hills School District a “place of realized potential” for the entire school community. The district-level team used the answers to 13 guiding questions to identify accomplishments and systemic challenges. Three of the district's buildings (the high school, Linton, and Penn Hebron) were involved in writing school improvement plans. Those plans were then incorporated into the district's Comprehensive Plan.

As part of the Comprehensive Planning Process, a draft of the Penn Hills School District Plan will be available for public review and an opportunity to submit suggestions or questions. The finalized Plan will be recommended to the School Board for adoption at the meeting on Jan. 14, 2013.

Copies of the plan and feedback forms are available in the office of all district buildings, and can also be found online at Comments will be accepted until Dec. 30.
