Providence Public Schools 2019 Review

In April 2019, Governor Gina Raimondo, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza, and Commissioner of Education Angélica Infante-Green called for a review of the Providence Public School District.

As committed as Rhode Islanders have been to serving Providence students and families, the district continues to struggle, and more must be done to improve outcomes for Providence students.

To that end, a diverse team of local and national education experts will undertake a review of the district.

The review team will be charged with visiting schools and listening to stakeholders about the challenges faced in the classroom and central office, from limited supplies and consistent curriculum to red tape with purchasing. To be clear, this is only a review. The team will not make any decisions for how to address the challenges they identify. Once complete, the report will be made public so that we can have an open, honest conversation about what it means and what we need to do moving forward. This is just the start of our conversation.

Review Elements

  • School visits are scheduled for the week of May 20
  • The review team will simultaneously conduct focus groups and stakeholder conversations with students, parents, teachers, central office staff, local elected officials, and community-based organizations
  • Public forums will be coordinated in late May. Details are forthcoming, and will be posted here.
