The Bentworth School District is making every effort to provide quality educational opportunities to the residents and students in the District. These opportunities serve the academic, athletic, cultural, and social needs of our community. As you view our website, we believe you will see the positive impact of our educational programs.
We experienced a significant change in administrative and teaching personnel over the past few years. This created a substantial impact on our professional staff and necessitated increased professional activities. To accommodate the needs of our new employees, we are providing structured, site based professional staff development.
Our previous strategic plan focused upon expanding student assessment activities, promoting active engagement of students in learning activities by all teachers through Differentiated Instruction, and identifying and implementing organizational frameworks that will support and enhance the school culture as the school district draws attention to the relationships between the academic, emotional, and social focus of the entire educational program. The Comprehensive Plan for the next six years is currently under development. Elements of assessment, instruction and school culture will continue to be the focus for the foreseeable future.
Overall, the Bentworth School District continues to address the academic standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. We are proud of the overall performance of our students as our cumulative SPP score ranked the district fourth out of twenty five schools in Intermediate Unit #1 for the 2012-2013 school year. The teaching staff continues to strive for excellence in their efforts to provide dynamic instruction. Great things are happening at Bentworth!
