Democratic Responsibility for America and to Our Children
The Muhlenberg School District has provided enriching learning opportunities for generations. Our history continues to be the cornerstone for continuous improvement. You will see the power of education in the thousands of students whom have graduated from the Muhlenberg School District. Our mission and role in American society has never been more important than it is today. We know by continuously investing in quality programs and technology that our children PK-12, unquestionably, will have the proper tools to prepare them for their future. This is only a portion of the incredible responsibility in delivering instruction and teaching social and emotional skills to cope with society’s demands and prepare children to be productive citizens.
The Muhlenberg School District is a beautiful and inspiring blend of children from all parts of the world and from multi-dimensional backgrounds. Our keystone in reaching our children, with all of the tools and materials in consideration, is the human spirit from teachers, staff and administrators who care about our children.
The 2021-2022 school year will be an exciting time for the Muhlenberg community. You will see this in our holistic plan for success (2014), action plan’s concentric circles (2018), and post pandemic plan (2021) which clearly define the focus of our district. We have successfully piloted and implemented programs in literacy, math, science, and mental health (K-12) including a back-filling of higher education concepts into our high school, invested millions of dollars into technology in addition to an aggressive plan to address cyber learning through the Muhlenberg Virtual School. These multiple avenues will provide much needed pathways to enhance the district’s dire responsibility which includes steadfast importance of health and safety for all students and staff in addressing the needs of our ever changing community.
You will find clear evidence on our website of previous district initiatives from over the past eight years which have resulted in tremendous opportunities for our children. We have increased enrollment over 25 percent for our students engaging in career and technology pathways for our high school students attending the RMCTC. The Air Force JROTC program has completed its fourth year with over 500 cadets experiencing the importance of service, knowledge, integrity, character, and pride and respect for the greatest country on earth, the United States of America.
The Muhlenberg School District is the 23rd most diverse school district in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and has an incredible responsibility to invest and grow our children academically, socially, and productively with care and respect. Our rich cultural enrollment only stands for the hope and promise for all children to pursue the American dream. I wish you the very best in the spirit of the Muhlenberg School District.Joseph Macharola, Ed. D.
