Boston Public Schools Systemic Improvement Plan (SIP)

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released a district review report of Boston Public Schools (BPS) in May 2022, following up on the previous report released in March 2020. As outlined in the follow-up report, DESE uses district review reports to support local school districts in establishing or strengthening a cycle of continuous improvement. While the May 2022 district review report noted that BPS has made progress since March 2020, key findings included significant, persistent challenges in BPS. As a result, in June 2022, the City of Boston (City) and the Boston Public Schools (BPS) agreed to a Systemic Improvement Plan that was accepted by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
