  • Realignment Update from Dr. Scanlon

    Dear Central Bucks Staff, Parents, Students, and Community Members:

    We invite you to an in-person community update on the District’s work in exploring full day kindergarten as well as realigning our grade structure in our schools:

    Wednesday, February 21 at 6 p.m. at Tohickon Middle School, 5051 Old Easton Rd, Doylestown.

    You can find the latest information about realignment here https://www.cbsd.org/cbrealign. To help us best prepare for this meeting, we hope you will submit questions about the realignment process to this online form, so we have time to thoroughly review and address them. We will do our best to respond to questions publicly as well as individually in email. 

    The realignment committee, which includes staff, parents, students, and community members, has been studying this plan for seven months. This meeting will provide an update on the progress the committee has made in analyzing these changes, and share a potential timeline for next steps. We will post the presentation on our website by February 21st.  At this time, our School Board is expected to decide on next steps at its March 12th meeting.   

    We look forward to seeing you on February 21st. If you cannot attend this meeting, please look for continued updates on this plan via email and on our website. 

    We appreciate your ongoing support and engagement in this important initiative.

    A Letter from Superintendent Abram M. Lucabaugh, Ed.D.

    Dear Central Bucks Community,

    At last evening’s demographic study update, three significant recommendations were presented to our community, all projected for implementation in the 2025-2026 school year:

    1. Grade level realignment (elementary school K-5, middle school 6-8, high school 9-12)
    2. Keeping all 23 schools open (Linden will not close)
    3. Implementation of a full-day kindergarten program

    We are confident these recommendations will enable our district to deliver a premier educational experience by increasing access, opportunity, and choice for our nearly 18,000 students. As we move toward the start of the 2025-2026 school year, we will continue to provide regular updates, including timelines, supporting research, and opportunities for stakeholder input. View last evening’s presentation and submit questions and feedback here on our website.

    We are incredibly excited for what these systemic changes will mean for our students and families, and we thank you for your continued support of our district.


    Abram M. Lucabaugh, Ed.D.
