District Comprehensive Plan

District Goals (2020-2021)

  • Mission Statement 

    "The mission of the Northern Lehigh School District community is to create a challenging and supportive environment dedicated to meeting the diverse educational needs of all learners."

    Achievement & Growth

    School and Academic Department Leadership will continue to utilize student achievement and growth data from state and/or local level assessments to determine an area of focus and develop an action plan to improve outcomes which are differentiated for all learners. Furthermore, this data will be used to identify and address gaps as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Professional Development

    Offer customized professional development based upon the needs of each employee, specific to the school, grade level, and/or department in which they work. Professional development should be responsive to participant need, purposeful, and ongoing. Participants will be provided an opportunity for reflection and feedback. We will enhance professional development in partnership with external consultants and continue to further develop in-house experts for sustainability.

    Culture & Climate

    The district will continue to develop a positive school culture and climate including supporting members of the school community through trauma-informed approaches in a setting that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

    Instructional Technology 

    Continue the effective use of instructional technology both inside and outside of the classroom to enhance the education of our students. Technology will be used to strengthen communication, collaboration, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.

    District Operations

    The Northern Lehigh School District will provide high quality teaching and learning in a safe, healthy, and secure learning environment while offering cost efficient services to all stakeholders.
