District Report Card

We are pleased to share our annual district and school-based report cards published by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  The report cards contain information about school and district accountability, student achievement on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS), and other important measures of school performance.  Click on the appropriate link to read the complete report card for the following:

INFORMATION ABOUT THE REPORT CARDS

The first page of the report card contains important accountability information:

  • Accountability and Assistance Levels: Schools and districts are placed into one of five accountability and assistance levels (1-5), with the highest rating being Level 1 and lowest rating being Level 5. Our district/school has been given an accountability designation of “no level” because students in our school participated in the 2017 Next-Generation MCAS tests.

  • Shows how students in the district/school are performing on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests. Achievement and progress information is reported for our school and is also compared to the performance of our district and the state.

 

The second page of the report card provides information about the students and teachers in our school as compared to the district and the state. Also included are other important measures of school performance, such as attendance, suspension rates, and high school performance.

 

To improve student performance in our school, we always encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. Some of the ways you can become involved are:

  • Encouraging your child’s learning at home

  • Attending parent-teacher meetings and other special meetings

  • Serving as a volunteer in our school or district

  • Encouraging other parents to become involved

For information on how to read and navigate the digital report cards, please view this instructional document.
