The Board of Education’s vision is for all School District of Philadelphia students to thrive, succeed, and lead in a global society. This drives the mission of the SDP to provide an excellent public school education and ensure all children graduate from high school ready to succeed, fully engaged as a citizen of our world. We can achieve these by working together and committing to the changes needed to provide our students, educators, and leaders with the necessary opportunities and resources.
We approach this work with urgency, a focus on equity, and with a new method of problem solving and implementing solutions. But it won’t happen overnight. We are setting clear expectations and rigorously monitoring our progress. We are committed to taking swift action driven by data, community input, and proven strategies.
