About the Compact

The Boston Compact brings district, charter and Catholic school educators together in order to provide equitable access to high-performing schools and excellent instruction to all students.

Before the Compact, we and our colleagues across the City worked tirelessly to prepare children for success in college and career – but we did so in inefficient silos. Through the Compact, we are building a cross-sector network of educators and thinking holistically about education throughout our City.

We dedicate our time and energies to this work because we know that children, families and the City benefit from our sharing of effective practices and collaboration to streamline operations.

Closing achievement gaps and leveling the playing field is a long-term undertaking. We ask you to lend your shoulder to the plow and we invite your ideas, questions and support.

Thank you,
