Dear Families:

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. A link to our school’s report card is available at http://reportcards.doe.mass.edu/2019/06250300

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 be useful tools for everyone connected to our school. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our school.

You will notice on our report card that our students have access to broad and challenging coursework, including the Arts, we maintain an excellent attendance and discipline record and consistently score better than the state in all areas of MCAS.  To improve student performance in our school, we are piloting a new Science curriculum at all grade levels, implementing consistent district-wide programming in literacy and math, providing Professional Development with a focus on maximizing student achievement, and implementing assistive technology for special Education and General Education students.  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 also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • 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 about our school’s report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact me at 508-697-6968 ext. 16135. To see our district’s report card or to search for other schools’ report cards, visit http://reportcards.doe.mass.edu. 

Sincerely,

Nancy P. Kirk

Principal
