State-appointed superintendent Paymon Rouhanifard will present a strategic plan for Camden schools Monday at Octavius V. Catto Community School.

The presentation, open to the public, starts at 6 p.m. with a light dinner and discussion to follow.

Rouhanifard will present the plan again at Tuesday night's school board meeting.

In August 2012, the then-school board created a five-year plan but the district was taken over by the state a little less than a year later.

Rouhanifard, who took the helm in August 2013, has said the strategies in his forthcoming plan were largely based on his 100-day listening tour with parents, teachers and students and a school climate survey, the results of which are available here
