A Note From The Superintendent

Implementation of the Plan for Excellence has already begun.  District administrators have been hard at work securing proposals for the complex task of moving furniture and equipment over a very short summer of 2015.  Administrators and representative of the Woodland Hills Education Association have also been working very closely and cooperatively to assure that all of our buildings will be staffed by the best and brightest teachers we have.  By very early February we hope to have named a Plan for Excellence Steering Committee that will assist the Board of Directors in monitoring and overseeing the progress of the Plan’s implementation.  We will also hold periodic community forums to help keep the members of the Woodland Hills community as up to date as possible on the work being done to make this exciting new vision a reality.  The Plan for Excellence represents what is perhaps the biggest change in the history of the Woodland Hills School District going back almost to its inception.  It is a bold and sweeping change that we believe will make our District among the best and most attractive public school systems in Allegheny County.  Our residents, and above all our students, deserve nothing less. We welcome you to the start of a new Woodland Hills School District.   It is my sincere hope that you will join us in this effort and that, together, we can move from a Plan for Excellence to a reality of excellence!
