Survey to help plan for West Jefferson Hills future

Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

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,, until Feb. 10. Students and staff also will be administered surveys in their buildings, Rajgopal said.
