Comprehensive Planning at Palisades!
The process of determining the goals and objectives for our school district for the next three years is known as Comprehensive Planning and has been underway in Palisades and in other districts throughout the state.
The Comprehensive Planning Team has assessed the areas requiring additional focus and attention for these next three years in order to move Palisades School District forward. This process takes the commitment of many stakeholders – we are happy to have had representation from across our district in this very important process.
