Building Planning Team

With the goal of creating a “results-oriented,” standards-based building, members of the school community participate in John A. Sciole's Building Planning Team (BPT).

  • Each school building will have its own BPT responsible for making decisions and supporting initiatives within its school.
  • Student achievement is the driving force behind all team decisions.
  • Based upon the needs of the building, membership may include other stakeholders, i.e., students, support staff, community members, and Board of Education members.
  • The selection and replacement of team members should reflect a democratic process by involving their individual constituencies.
  • Agendas, operational procedures, and meeting dates shall be the function of the Building Planning Teams and should be scheduled to accommodate the needs of all stakeholders.
  • Decisions should be made by consensus whenever possible.
  • Trained team members are essential for effective team operation. Members are expected to participate in ongoing skill development.
  • Teams should design & implement effective communication channels.
  • District-level planning should include input from BPTs. Once any plan is adopted by the district, it should become a framework for the individual building goals.
