CPS District Planning Process

Town HallThe Cambridge School Committee and Superintendent Kenneth Salim are nearing completion of a year-long process to develop a 3-year plan for Cambridge Public Schools. The goal of this process is to engage the community in thoughtful, collaborative, data-driven planning for the future of our schools and our district. Following the three meetings listed below, the CPS administration will develop an action plan for operationalizing the goals, objectives, and priorities established by the community, in order to begin implementation during the 2017-2018 school year.

More Information & Background
The District Planning Process emerged from Superintendent Salim’s entry process and is aligned with the Entry Plan Report (PDF), which he presented to the School Committee in January. Watch a video of the presentation >>

The process is guided by Planning for Success, a framework provided by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. It will result in a three-year District Plan that includes strategic objectives, programs and initiatives, and outcome measures and metrics. The first phase of plan development – Visioning Sessions with diverse stakeholders – has recently been completed.
