Lawrence Public Schools Company Information
- United States
About Lawrence Public Schools: Lawrence Public Schools believes that the fundamental unit of change in education reform is the school, not the district. In 2011, we were designated as being chronically underperforming. The Commissioner of Education appointed a receiver, who has the power of both the superintendent and the school committee. The receiver was charged with meaningfully improvingï¿½and sustainingï¿½academic achievement in his schools. While the receiver could have imposed more top-down and uniform policies to manage schools, instead, he chose a different path. In 2012, we began a turnaround in which educators used increased autonomy to lead their schools to success. The central office worked in service of the schools, rather than in management of the schools. This change paved the way for progress and improvement since 2012. Lawrence Public Schools is an urban district serving more than 13,000 students, the majority of whom are economically disadvantaged. More than 70% of our students speak a language other than English as their first language. We are committed to ensuring that our students, who have for too long been underserved, are provided with a high-quality, free, public education at their local, district schools.
