BPS Vision and Strategy

In 2019, Billerica Public Schools had just undergone the "Billerica 2019" transition, which involved the opening of the new high school, the closing of the Vining School, the redistricting of elementary and middle schools, and a change in the district's grade configuration. The district is now looking into the future, asking the questions:

What is our vision for education for students in Billerica for 2020 and beyond?

In order to support students for their futures, what goals do we need to set, and how do we get there?

With these guiding questions, we enter into our visioning and strategic planning, which will guide the district in the work of cultivating educational programming that serves all of our students and families.
