Hershey Middle School Steering Committee
The Middle School has undertaken an extensive self-evaluation of its programs in an attempt
to revisit best practices in middle level education. To do this, the Middle School is working
in a cooperative effort with Dr. George White of Lehigh University. Dr. White and his team
will be working with administrators, teachers,staff members, parents, and students throughout
the next two years to expand and improve programs and services offered.
A Steering Committee has been put together to help guide the process. The Steering Committee
collected data from surveying teachers, staff members, administrators, parents and students.
The results of the survey were validated through a two day visitation where a team of
middle level educational professionals explored every aspect of Hershey Middle School.
The results of the survey and the visitation were presented to the entire faculty and staff in
a written report. This report outlined specific areas of focus as uncovered through the survey
results and the visitation. The areas of focus are:
- Middle Level Philosophy
- Teaming Practices
- Student Engagement
- Student Services
The Steering Committee is charged with creating task-forces of teachers to explore each
of these areas and make recommendations based on best practices in middle level education
The Steering Committee will meet monthly to coordinate efforts of the task forces. The
Hershey Middle School Steering Committee includes the following Administrators, Teachers
