Strength in Numbers | The vision of the 5DP is to collaborate around four central areas that we believe will result in our collective ability to raise student achievement: High Quality Instructional Resources | Professional Growth and Development for Teachers | Educator Relationships | Efficiency & Fiscal Prudence.


Five Districts, One Goal | The 5DP seeks to close the student achievement gap by aligning the following across our five urban districts: high-quality curriculum, performance standards, assessments, instructional resources, and professional development.


Five District Partnership was founded in 2012 after research showed a high rate of student mobility within the districts of Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Revere and Winthrop. The Five District Partnership (5DP) is a joint educational effort between these districts focused on improving instruction and academic achievement.
