From Frank T. Gallagher, Superintendent of Schools
It is at this time of the year that we realize that the end of the school year is upon us and feelings of anticipation and excitement are in the air. Our spring arts and athletics seasons are in full swing and I encourage you to attend some of our outstanding events.
This time of the school year has also become associated with standardized testing and while we understand the need to assess the achievement of our students, we remain focused on the “whole child.” Our desire to meet the needs of our students propels us forward and we are excited about many new initiatives in the district, one of these being Parent University. To date, we have hosted three of these sessions at which parents can learn more about our curricular programs. These content-rich workshops are led by administrators, teachers and other leaders within our community and all members of the public are invited to attend.
We are preparing our district budget for the 2016-2017 school year and despite budget challenges at the state level, we are on schedule to present a proposed budget this month. We were able to persevere through the Commonwealth budget stalemate, but I am encouraging our local legislators to fully fund schools through the Fair Funding Formula.
