Strategic planning is a hallmark of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District approach to good stewardship and excellence in education.
It all starts with identifying student needs for success in life - engaging the community with the Board and Administration in and effort to responsibly meet student needs through curriculum, staffing, infrastructure and all other necessary supports.
Areas of Focus

- Comprehensive Plan - A state mandated process, primarily focused on the curricular needs of students.
- Curriculum Cycle - A UCFSD process of evaluating each area of curriculum on a 5 year cycle.

- Comprehensive Counseling Program - Also a state mandated process, primarily focused on the academic, career, and personal/social development needs of our students.
