Wellesley Public Schools Superintendent David Lussier has notified the community that after meeting with individuals and groups in town since taking on the job last year, he’s ready to start talking specifics about a multi-year strategic plan regarding academics, school facilities and more.
He writes: “The core of this effort will be focused on addressing three essential questions: What should all Wellesley students know and be able to do? What program(s) of instruction will best develop these competencies? How will we measure our success?”
An Advisory Committee has been formed to manage this process and includes teachers, administrators, parents, and town officials. The public is invited to attend any of these upcoming meetings to give early input into the process:
- Wednesday, February 13, 3-4:30 PM, Wellesley Middle School Auditorium
- Monday, February 25, 7-8:30 PM, Katherine L. Babson, Jr. Auditorium at Wellesley High School
- Wednesday, March 5, 7-8:30 PM, Wakelin Room, Wellesley Free Library
More specific focus groups will be formed and a town-wide survey will be issued in late March. Lussier is looking to have a working draft of the plan in place by early summer.
