DeRuyter Central Schools

District Planning Team - 2010


The purpose of the DeRuyter Central School’s District Planning Team (DPT) is to ensure participation of parents and teachers with administrators in the school-based planning and shared-decision making.   Central to this goal is a solid and consistent communication link between the Board of Education, the Administration, faculty, staff, parents, students, and community members.

The DPT also plays a vital role in the district meeting its obligations to the State Education Department by helping the district review on an annual or biannual basis many key district plans such as its Professional Development Plan (PDP) and the Shared Decision-Making Plan (SDMP). 

This web page will be used to open a line of communication for both the faculty and the community as meeting minutes will be posted monthly.  The DPT will also use this page to solicit community input for various initiatives that it is leading.   Feel free to contact any DPT member with your thoughts and concerns at any time.

DPT members present at each meeting are listed in the meeting minutes.
