CPS District Planning Process

Dr. SalimThe Cambridge School Committee and Superintendent Kenneth Salim have embarked on 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.

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.

Next Steps
The planning team will present a draft of the District Plan to the School Committee and the community in June. Following review, discussion, and deliberation, the School Committee will vote on the plan.
