Worcester is embarking on a strategic planning initiative toward making the Worcester Public Schools one of the best urban systems in the country. While we do better than most urban systems in the state, there is much more that can be done to meet the needs of our students and the community.
WORCESTER – Fulfilling a request made more than a year ago by elected school officials and local research and policy groups, Superintendent Maureen Binienda on Friday announced her administration will develop a strategic plan for the district over the remainder of the year.
Why would the Worcester Public Schools, which turned itself into a “high-performing” urban school system, need a strategic plan despite going without one for a quarter century? School Superintendent Maureen Binienda announced on Friday that with the help of private funding, she expects to have a plan completed by January.
