The Way Forward
​​The Way Forward identifies eight key goals that will help Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools become a great district. CMS is uniquely positioned to move from good to great. There is a strong foundation in place and community-wide understanding of the importance of quality public schools.

This plan builds on those strengths.  How well our students are prepared for post-secondary work directly affects our workforce and our competitive position as a region. Educating our children is important work – too important for us not to do it well.
