CPS District Planning Process

district plan

The 2017-2020 District Plan for Cambridge Public Schools has been developed through a year-long process to engage stakeholders in developing a shared vision and strategic objectives for the Cambridge Public Schools.

Following listening sessions and school observations during the first half of 2016-17, Dr. Salim presented initial findings of his Entry Process to the School Committee in January 2017. These findings laid the foundation for developing a formal 3-Year-Plan for CPS. This multi-year roadmap for the Cambridge Public Schools was presented to the School Committee on June 20 and will be further discussed during a School Committee a Roundtable (date TBD).

CPS administrators are now beginning work on the next phase of the planning process, creating the detailed action plan that will support effective implementation of specific plan initiatives in the 2017-18 school year. This action planning will be conducted by the District Administrative Leadership Team (composed of all Principals, Curriculum Coordinators, Student Services coordinators, and other senior CPS administrators.) In addition, the District Administrative Leadership Team has begun to discuss the work of aligning district systems, such as the budget and School Improvement Plans, with the multi-year district plan.

Following are some of the key documents and information shared during this first phase of the planning process.

This process is following the Planning for Success model, developed by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
