The ECPS administration is sharing the new Comprehensive Plan (DRAFT) for comment prior to seeking the School Board’s approval. This Comprehensive Plan represents the essential actions we must make to continue to move the Division forward. This plan does not represent all school and department actions but, rather, some of the most important actions which have an impact on all our students. This is an evolving plan as we will critically evaluate and take the necessary actions to ensure that we make progress for the benefit of our students and the community.
