Pine Bluff School District (PBSD) invites staff, students, and community members to come together on November 1, 2022 at the Pine Bluff Convention Center to learn about, give input on, and kick-off the district’s five-year strategic plan.

The strategic plan, developed over the last twelve months with broad community input, focuses on improving student outcomes by addressing critical areas of need in the district.

The long-awaited strategic plan will be a key indicator for the Arkansas State Board of Education to determine whether PBSD is ready and able to return to local authority after it completes the five-yearspan of state control on June 30, 2024.

The plan includes five strategies that address expanding learning opportunities for students, creating safer environments, improving school facilities, increasing the number of excellent teachers and leaders, and building trust in the district.  

Each of the strategies will be implemented over the next five years. Community members can learn more about the vision, goals, strategies, and implementation plans at the event, as well as give input into how to create conditions for the plan’s success.

The event will also include an opportunity for the community to get information from local service providers and talk with strategic plan leaders directly.
