Changing the Way We Do Business
Never before has Massachusetts been under greater pressure to make government more effective and efficient. We must make even more informed decisions and respond to a public that is demanding greater accountability and transparency. The Executive Office of Administration and Finance (A&F) is leading the way in building a state government that thinks and acts more strategically.
Through the Office of Commonwealth Performance, Accountability and Transparency (CPAT), A&F is helping to drive strategic planning and performance management across state government to produce better results for the people of the Commonwealth.
The EOE is working in partnership with A&F and state education agencies to implement education policies and initiatives effectively and efficiently in order to maximize results for students, educators, families, and the Commonwealth as a whole.
EOE Mission, Vision, and Strategic Goals
The EOE is committed to creating a more aligned, comprehensive, and successful 21st century public education system that builds on our achievements so that we can better ensure that all Massachusetts students are prepared to be lifelong learners and succeed in the global economy.
By investing in research-based strategies, raising standards and accountability, improving assessments, increasing the quality of teaching, promoting innovation, enhancing student supports and rewarding excellence, Governor Patrick is ensuring that all Massachusetts students not only remain at the head of the class nationally, but are positioned to successfully compete internationally and to fully realize the American Dream.
Our strategic goals for the next two years are as follows:
- Increase levels of third grade reading proficiency for all Massachusetts children;
- Enhance the effectiveness of the educator workforce;
- Successfully turn around our lowest performing schools and districts; and
- Increase college and career readiness.
