Survey to help plan for West Jefferson Hills future

West Jefferson Hills residents: your opinion is wanted to help school district leaders craft goals.

A strategic plan is in the works in the West Jefferson Hills school system that officials say will help set the course for future updates and examine the district's goals and mission.

“This is extremely important as we continue to chart the course of the school district over the next few years, which are very critical,” acting assistant Superintendent Hamsini Rajgopal said at last week's school board meeting.

The district typically completes a strategic plan every five years, as required by state law. But this time, the process is different — more comprehensive, officials have said.

A survey — geared toward elementary, middle and high school parents and community members — is in progress, Rajgopal said.

The survey will be available on the district website, www.wjhsd.net, until Feb. 10. Students and staff also will be administered surveys in their buildings, Rajgopal said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
