WORCESTER – Fulfilling a request made more than a year ago by elected school officials and local research and policy groups, Superintendent Maureen Binienda on Friday announced her administration will develop a strategic plan for the district over the remainder of the year.

The proposed long-term plan, which will guide decision-making in the district and establish goals for the schools, will be completely funded through private donations, according to the superintendent, representing a value of $50,000 to $100,000.

The district will receive help with the project from the Rennie Center, a Boston-based education think tank, as well as several local organizations, including the Worcester Education Collaborative and Worcester Regional Research Bureau. The superintendent has also formed an advisory committee composed of representatives from those groups as well as other school staff and School Committee members to lead the project.
