Building Level Planning Team (BPT)

With a goal of creating a “results-oriented,” standards-based building, members of the school community participate in the Lancaster Middle School 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.
  • Selection and replacement of team members should reflect a democratic process by involving their individual constituency.
  •  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 and implement effective communication channels.
  • District level planning should include input from BPT’s.  Once any plan is adopted by the district, it should become a framework for the individual building goals.
