DISTRICT REPORT CARD
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 District’s report card is designed to show families how our District is doing in different areas. A link to our District report cards is available at reportcards.doe.mass.edu/2018/DistrictReportcard/00930000
The report card includes multiple measures of a District’s performance—more than just MCAS scores. It represents a new way of looking at the District’s performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications school learning opportunities, and more.
Report cards are designed to be useful tools for everyone connected to our District. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the District 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 District.
Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title 1 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 as 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,
- Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
