Resource Allocation and Strategic Planning for Districts

The Resource Allocation Strategy and Planning (RASP) unit within OPR seeks to enhance and support districts' resource allocation and data use.

Provide districts with reports and resources to make effective decisions

Education systems face a common challenge of delivering the best possible outcomes with limited resources. DESE is committed to supporting educators in employing data and evidence effectively to develop strategic plans, use evidence-based practices, align resources, and continuously improve their work.

Other OPR initiatives related to resource allocation:

The Planning for Success initiative helps district leaders with local improvement planning and monitoring for continuous improvement.

The "How Do We Know" initiative ties into these planning and resource allocation tools with resources about evidence-based practice across the Commonwealth.
