Established by the corporate and foundation communities in 1984, the Boston Plan for Excellence is the primary partner of the Boston Public Schools in improving instruction, with a focus on school-based professional development. The local education foundation collaborates with schools to pilot initiatives that offer potential to improve instruction and with the central office to address policies that hamper schools' efforts. Led by a volunteer board of trustees, the Boston Plan also manages with the district an independent teacher preparation and certification program and hosts Principal For A Day each fall.
