School Committee - Recap - Sep 10, 2019

The recap of the School Committee meeting held Sep 10, 2019 is summarized as follows:

The three middle schools collaborated to present the highlights of their individual improvement plans. There is more consistency across the district as shown in the plans.

The high school followed to share their improvement plan updates. There is similarity with some programs continuing across the district to the high school. Some programs are also continuing to evolve as they develop with each of the schools.

The high school also presented plans to eventually recognize the students for biliteracy achievement. Student with another language as their primary and achieving levels of mastery in both their primary and English languages. Going the other way, students with mastery in English who also master another language would also be recognized. More work to develop the program is underway with possible first recognition for the graduates in the class of 2021. 

The proposal to study the implications of closing Davis Thayer was approved. The study will take time before coming back with some real numbers and scenarios for decision.

Additional details can be found in my notes reported live during the meeting. Links provided below.
