Superintendent's Message

The district strategic plan was presented for review and an update was given to the School Committee at their work session on July 16th

We have just finished the first year of the five year plan. In the website article posted on July 16th  an update was given on goal five which speaks to “managing our fiscal resources efficiently and effectively” specifically on strategies 5.4, 5.6, 5.11, 5.12 and 5.13- all strategies dealing with technology.  Today, let’s look at where the district is in regards to the remaining strategies for goal 5.

5.1 – Implementation of all day K- The General Assembly approved and the governor has signed legislation to provide full education aid funding for children enrolled in full-day kindergarten, beginning with the 2016-17 school year. Shortly, we’ll begin a study as to how to implement full day k for the 2016-17 school year utilizing our current space.

5.2- Evaluation of enrollment data has started with attention to attendance, and suspension data.

5.3- Budget decisions for course offerings with a specific process will start in the fall, 2014 in preparation for the 2015-2016 budget season.

5.5- Study of Integration of Technology services with the city has not started at this time.

5.8- UCOA stands for the Unified Chart of Accounts. This is a budgeting method that is required by RIDE. Currently, the school system has approximately 12,000 accounts. This goal has been completed as we are in full implementation and compliance.

5.15- Implementation of a capital facilities improvement plan is well under way with a plan in place. This summer four projects will be completed.  A bond will be placed on the November ballot for voter approval to continue with specific safety improvements to all buildings.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments.
