PATERSON, NJ  – Paterson Public Schools will hold a series of community forums to present the goals and objectives of the District's recently released five-year strategic plan, as well as the steps that will be undertaken to achieve them, Superintendent Eileen Shafer announced Wednesday.

The five-year plan, unveiled earlier this year, was developed during the 2018-2019 school year though a year-long process that included students, parents, community leaders, Board of Education members and district staff members.

One forum will be held in each ward, Shafer said, and will offer opportunities for Paterson families and other stakeholders to delve into the plan and the steps the district will take to realize the plan’s goals and objectives.
