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.
