Achievement First Schools
Our first Rhode Island school, Achievement First Providence Mayoral Academy, opened in 2013. We are proud to serve students from Providence, North Providence, Warwick and Cranston, and to prove what’s possible for students in the Ocean State.

What is the Local Advisory Committee?
The Local Advisory Committee (LAC) is a group of parents, teachers, school administrators and related service providers (social workers, psychologists, speech/language pathologists, etc.) working together on behalf of children with special needs to improve services that support our students.
Parents and Partners
The LAC plays a vital role in the success of special education programs and services by providing resources to parents as well as special education professionals. These resources help parents and special educators become partners in delivering the best and most appropriate services to students in their care.
