District Accelerated Improvement Plan

We are committed to shaping a bright future for the New BeAIP Pillar Graphicdford Public Schools and the students and families we serve.

Through continuous improvement at all levels and a laser-like focus on outstanding teaching and learning in every classroom, we will close achievement gaps and ensure the success of all students.

Our work is guided by the District Accelerated Improvement Plan (download PDF), approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. It outlines a new Instructional Framework, accompanied by tools and strategies to help teacher improve their practice.

The AIP establishes a primary goal for the entire district of preparing every graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to excel after high school:

College and Career Readiness for All NBPS Students


This overarching goal is supported by four major objectives:

  1. High-Quality Teaching
  2. Data Use
  3. Team Excellence
  4. Community Engagement


The AIP includes a series of key initiatives and activities designed to achieve each of these objectives, as well as a process to monitor our progress and hold ourselves accountable at all levels.
