New Superintendent of Providence
Schools Harrison has submitted his plan to turnaround the Providence school
system. A link to the 10-page plan is below.
The plan addresses several major sections:
“Our diverse communities will play a substantive role in charting a new path for Providence Public Schools. I will listen to and learn from students, parents/caregivers, educators and citizens. I will also take immediate action to make sure our schools are welcoming for ALL families and begin to work hand-in-hand with non-profit, faith, higher education, and business communities to provide the critical supports necessary to meet our students’ needs. We use the plural of communities because it means we intend to engage with all interested groups, including teachers, parents, students, central office staff, activists, local government and taxpayers”.
increase academic achievement, we must be prepared to deliver high quality,
standards-aligned, rigorous and culturally responsive curriculum to every
student in Providence Public Schools. We will work to close equity gaps and
increase proficiency for all students. To do this, we must maintain inclusive,
future-ready learning environments and build pathways aligned to student needs,
interests and careers while prioritizing school culture and taking a
teachers and school leaders in our system must be set up for success. We must
develop a highly skilled and diverse workforce. To do this, we must put
professional learning at the center of improvement, create flexible pathways
into the teaching and school leadership professions and provide leadership
development opportunities for all. I will immediately get to work in building a
staff that understands and prioritizes racial equity, is committed to the
limitless potential of our students and understands student needs.
