This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.

Strategic Planning Survey

In conjunction with the district's strategic planning process, which several of the contributors to this website are participating in, the administration has prepared a survey that it would like all members of the community to participate in.  The survey is now live on the district website, and will be open until Friday, October 15th.

Dr. Galinski has also posted a letter of explanation on the district website, some of which is excerpted here:
Beverly Public Schools is conducting a system-wide survey as part of its strategic planning process. The survey will help guide the district leaders on what they do and why they do it over a specific period of time. ...

Results of the survey will be posted to our website by the end of November.

A diverse community like ours is stronger when everyone shares their ideas. Thank you for taking the time to participate in our survey. 

Thank you for taking time to give us your input!
We will also post updates on this site as the process proceeds.
