Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school’s report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas.
The report card includes multiple measures of a school’s performance – more than just MCAS scores. It represents a new way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities, and more.
Report cards are designed to provide information about our schools, and school district, and shows how we are doing in comparison to the state.
You will notice on our report card that our district is achieving above the state average in most areas while keeping our per student spending lower than the state. We are fortunate to have skilled staff and dedicated families. By working together, we are building upon successes and continue to make our schools stronger. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support.
Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds, you have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers, however, please note from our report card that 100% of our teachers are licensed in the area in which they teach:
- Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach,
- Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver,
- The college degree and major of your child’s teacher, and
- Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
If you have questions or would like to get involved with our schools, please feel free to contact your school office or our district office.
