Building on Our Momentum

  • BUILDING ON OUR MOMENTUM

    Since implementing our Action Plan in 2014, the School District of Philadelphia has been making strategic investments to improve schools citywide.  Those investments are making a difference. School Progress Report scores and graduation rates have increased for three years in a row. Student achievement, progress and school climate scores are rising. More students are in school, performing better and having college- and career-readiness experiences. We have twice as many schools performing at the highest tiers of performance and 50% fewer lower-performing schools.

    We are proud of our progress but there is much more work to do to deliver on our vision: For ALL children to have access to a great school, close to where they live.”

    The Proposed SY2019-2020 Investment Plan will build on prior investments and support new priorities to further improve academic outcomes for students.

    NEW INVESTMENTS

    • Expanding our K-3 literacy model to grades 4 and 5
    • Building a strong foundation to improve math teaching and learning
    • Strengthening college- and career-readiness supports for students
    • Adding more services and supports in schools to help all learners succeed

    We invite you to learn more by watching the videos and reviewing the budget documents below.
