Superintendent Evaluation: According to the Pennsylvania School Code, districts’ school boards are required to develop mutually agreed upon objective performance standards for the superintendent and conduct a formal, written performance assessment of the superintendent annually. The objective performance standards are to be posted on the district’s website. At the end of the annual assessment period, the school board shall post the date of the assessment and whether or not the superintendent met the agreed-to objective performance standards.

Shaler Area Connection Blog: Mr. Sean Aiken launched the Shaler Area Connection blog page November 2016 to help build a strong, collaborative, and supportive partnership within the Shaler Area community as well as celebrate the District's successes. Follow the blog here: shalerarea.edublogs.org.

Message from the Superintendent

Dear Shaler Area families and friends,

Welcome back to another school year. The beginning of a brand new school year is one of the most exciting times of the year. Each new school year presents exciting adventures and growth opportunities for our students and staff. Students will be exploring new topics of study, participating in new activities, and fostering friendships that will hopefully last a lifetime.

Last school year, we engaged in some very exciting work to begin shaping the future of Shaler Area School District. Through the implementation of the human-centered design process, we have established a mission, vision, and core values that truly reflect input shared by the entire Shaler Area community. Here’s a quick look at our mission, our vision, and our core values:

Shaler Area School District is a collaborative, innovative, and
creative learning environment for all.

To serve our Shaler Area community and its children by providing an education
that fosters our youth to be contributing members of society

To develop resiliency, empathy, creative thinking, critical thinking,
and problem solving in every student on their path to fulfilling their potential 

Core Values
        • We value the celebration and promotion of excellence in our community.
        • We value a culture where everyone has a voice and everyone is an owner.
        • We value and encourage creative and innovative risk-taking.
        • We value our responsibility to serve and educate our community.
        • We value an atmosphere of trust, transparency, and collaboration. 

This work was extremely important for our district; knowing who we are and what we want to accomplish is essential for us as a district. This year, we will be building on this work through the focus and implementation of both short-term and long-term goal action plans. We appreciate the collaboration from all of the following stakeholders: students, parents, school board members, teachers, school administrators, and central office administrators.

So as we settle into a new year, I challenge all of our students, teachers, and administrors to embrace this school year, make the most of each opportunity, learn from mistakes, embrace struggles, and commit to becoming better and smarter each day. Our work ethic and strong desire for excellence will truly bring distinction to our school district. Have a great school year!
