• Dear Grove City Area School District Community Members,

    I have had the privilege to participate as a member of the Commonwealth Education Blueprint Steering Committee.  Details about this project are provided below.  I am sending out this communication as an invitation for members of our Grove City community to participate in this important initiative by completing a short survey.  Through this survey, you can have an impact on the vision for public education in Pennsylvania.  I hope that you will take a few minutes to review the information provided below, and to share your thoughts and perspective through the survey link.

    You are invited to help build the future of public education!

    Commonwealth Education Blueprint

    The Commonwealth Education Blueprint is a multiyear effort founded and managed by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association (PSBA) to develop and implement a statewide vision for the future of public education. Through this comprehensive project, education stakeholders from across the state and from many areas of expertise collaborate to proactively determine what education should look like in years to come.


    Pennsylvania will provide an equitable, exceptional public education that empowers all learners to achieve a meaningful, productive life in our democratic society.

    The Process & Your Involvement

    The project steering committee conducts meetings and collects data (ongoing since Oct. 2017) toward drafting the Blueprint. They have also been convening Blueprint study groups, focus groups and, now a statewide survey.

    Your involvement is critical to the Blueprint’s success! We hope you will participate in this short survey to build the foundation for public education in the future. Please complete it by July 11, 2018: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/edblueprintpa


    What’s Next?

    After all of the data has been compiled and analyzed, a comprehensive report will be and will serve as the driving document to set and benchmark milestones toward achieving the vision and shaping all future education-related legislation and advocacy. We hope you will join us in distributing the Blueprint and this vision later in 2018.

    For more information about the Commonwealth Education Blueprint, contact Ashley Lenker White, senior director of strategic initiatives, at (800) 932-0588 or ashley.white@psba.org.


    Thank you for your time and valuable input,
