What is a System of Great Schools?

A system of great schools is one in which every student has access to a great learning environment close to where they live. In order to meet this goal, we know that some schools need more support so that children can have the learning opportunities they deserve. With a focus on equity, each year the System of Great Schools team gathers and reviews data to better understand when, where and how we can ensure our students have access to high-performing schools across the District.

To help focus resources for the greatest impact on students, we work closely with principals, teachers, students, families and community members to hear more about what is working well and opportunities for improvement.
