Franklin (MA) Public Schools: District Improvement Plan

The following document is scheduled for discussion at the School Committee meeting on Tuesday, August 10, 2010.

The document outlines the District Improvement Plan (fondly referred to as the 'DIP'). The District Improvement Plan takes the Strategic Plan and sets out actions to bring the district to a level of achievement for each of their strategic objectives.

The format of the document should be easy to follow. Each page lays out one of the Core Values, with columns to show the strategies, resources, responsibilities, timelines, etc. to take action on.

How does this look to you?

What feedback would you have for the Administration, School Committee and whomever else participates on Tuesday evening?


  1. I have a question about the core value regarding school/community relationships. If part of the objective is to develop positive parent partnerships, why is there no mention of the PCC?

  2. @4school, that is a very good question! I had the same impression. If the district is supposed to build a relationship with the community why isn't there an objective to actually do that?

    I'll be at the meeting Tuesday to bring this up. Having previously worked on the Steering Committee for the Strategic Plan, this is a significant omission that should be corrected.
