Building on Hope: One-Year Report on the Providence Public Schools’ Transformation

Fall 2020 

The Turnaround Action Plan

The TAP is the product of a more than six-month planning process that started in December 2019, when the Rhode Island Department of Education named 45 members of the Community Design Teams (CDTs) to develop a set of recommendations for change.

Twenty-six (26) of the 41 recommendations in the TAP came directly from the CDTs. Numerous other stakeholder groups, including parents, students, transformation experts, and national organizations contributed to and enriched the final plan.

That is why this plan is our plan for transformational change.
