Superintendent Tony B. Watlington, Sr., Ed.D. presented the School District of Philadelphia’s new five-year strategic plan, Accelerate Philly, at the May 25 Board of Education action meeting. This plan marks the end of phase three of Superintendent Watlington’s three-phase approach to laying a strong foundation to improve outcomes for all students and achieve the Board’s Goals and Guardrails.

Over 200 members of the district community participated in three groups that contributed to the development of Accelerate Philly. These individuals represented a wide range of roles at schools and in district offices, as well as reflected the diversity of the district and every region of the city. These groups, in collaboration with Dr. Watlington and the Board of Education, engaged in a multi-stage process to develop Accelerate Philly.
