Welcome to the Superintendent's Office

Dr. Cheryl McWilliams

On behalf of the Pawtucket School Department, welcome and thank you for accessing our website.  We strive to continually improve educational excellence and global citizenship for all while practicing compassion, courage and collaboration.  This mission is in the forefront of everything we do as we provide increased opportunities for students while creating a sense of community.   We are committed to the pursuit of a high-quality education for all as we proactively frame the district for future change while pausing to acknowledge the many accomplishments of both our students and highly-qualified staff. We look forward to continuing to make great strides in a well-rounded education for our children and service to our families. We recognize and celebrate the rich cultural diversity in our community and believe that strong schools are the foundation for a strong community. Parent and family engagement and strong community partnerships are critical to the success of our schools and are valued voices as we work together to advance our educational system. We are proud of the collaborative work with our city officials and community partners.  We work together to foster an environment of honesty, openness, and kindness as role models for our students. We are #PawtucketProud! Together, we will make a difference to ensure a bright future for our children who “are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future” (JFK, 35th President of the United States)
