Great Schools Compact

Dr. Lori Shorr, Chief Education Officer for the School District of Philadelphia presented the 2011 Great Schools Compact to the School Reform Commission on November 16th, 2011. The Great School Compact is a commitment among the City of Philadelphia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the School District of Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools (PCPCS), and the Philadelphia Charters for Excellence (PCE) to foster a citywide commitment to grow and replicate high-performing charter- and district-run schools. The agreement is designed to increase cooperation between the School District and the city’s charter school community, to establish and share consistent academic metrics, and to expand the types of high-quality educational options available to students. Resources with additional information can be found below.

In the coming weeks, the District would like to hear what you think of the proposed Great Schools Compact. To share your feedback please email greatschoolscompact@philasd.org, or call 215-686-0333
