What we do
The Mayor’s Office of Education (MOE) provides leadership to improve education in the City of Philadelphia.
To achieve this mission, MOE creates policies and programs to:
- Expand access to quality pre-K for Philadelphia families;
- Support students and residents through Community Schools;
- Facilitate collaboration and partnership among many stakeholders to strengthen the local education landscape; and
- Advance key educational policy.
We work with public and private partners to support local schools and make educational opportunities more accessible for all.
Quality Pre-K Strengthening the local network of early childhood education providers, and expanding quality pre-K seats in every section of the city.
Community Schools Working with the entire school community to identify pressing needs and bring resources directly into schools.
There are no upcoming events.
Otis Hackney believes in improving opportunities for all children. Otis is a Philadelphia native who began his career teaching mathematics at Germantown High School and more recently served as principal at South Philadelphia High School, where he successfully helped heal divisions after high-profile instances of racially motivated school violence. Under his leadership, South Philadelphia High School also adopted a “community school” approach by creating unique partnerships with supportive service providers. Otis’ work as a former teacher and principal, and now as the current Chief Education Officer, is motivated by healing divides and listening to children and community members’ needs.
