Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Earned Autonomy Framework (Framework) is intended to codify LPS tradition of Open Architecture as an operating model. The Framework and associated tools will enable the district to strengthen this operating model by providing LPS and school leaders access to a comprehensive snapshot of school-level performance and empowering stakeholders to both share best practices and address school-level challenges. The Framework provides a holistic definition of the communitys expectations of school capacity and performance and builds on the Open Architecture philosophy by: Empowering school communities made up of school leaders, educators, and families to make strategic decisions to improve schools at the school-site level; Preserving autonomy for these school communities which are succeeding and/or progressing; and Enabling the central office to strategically allocate resources where most needed and deliver targeted support to schools that are failing and/or struggling. This Framework will augment the currently available accountability data compiled by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) with critical data points that are important to the Lawrence community, including: school-level operations, students access to high-quality instruction, school climate, and family engagement opportunities. Further, the Framework will act as a tool when determining differentiated autonomies and supports tailored to schools individualized needs. Such a tool is essential in an Open Architecture model in order to ensure that the central office can support schools and principals in a manner that is transparent, fair, and equitable, and that principals can earn and secure autonomy to continually improve and meet students needs. The Framework and associated tools will help LPS: Determine the degree to which each school is implementing strategies that promote student learning and achieving desired outcomes; Identify which schools would benefit from additional autonomy and which schools require additional supports and/or interventions; Utilize data to inform the type and level of autonomies and supports granted; Increase transparency and fairness of the districts school-level decisions regarding autonomies, supports, and interventions; and Build public-facing school-level snapshots that allow parents and other community members to understand each schools strengths and challenges.
