What is Forward 5?
The Springfield Public Schools Forward 5 initiative is a bold approach to help drive rapid and significant increases in student achievement at some of the district's schools: Chestnut, Kennedy and Kiley middle schools, the High School of Commerce, DeBerry and White Street Elementary Schools. The program becomes effective for the 2013-14 school year.
"The movement represents the most cutting edge education reform taking place in the country today. Our promise is a culture of equity and proficiency for all students and our Forward 5 initiative will help us deliver on that promise."
– Superintendent Daniel J. Warwick
