2020-2021 District & School Report Cards
“Every year, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education releases a report card for each school and district in the state. Just as a student's report card shows how they are doing in different classes, school and district report cards are designed to show parents and community members how a school or district is doing in different areas. Report cards highlight a school or district's strengths as well as any challenges that need to be addressed in order to make sure the needs of all students are being met.” –DESE
District and Schools Report Cards
In accordance with the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), all states and districts receiving federal Title I funds must prepare and disseminate annual report cards. Report cards are critical tools for promoting accountability for schools, districts, and states by publicizing data about student performance and program effectiveness for parents, policy makers, and other stakeholders. Report cards help families and the general public see where schools and districts are succeeding and where there is still work to do.
We are pleased to provide you with our Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) district and school report cards. Families and other community members may also find a hard copy of the report card at the local libraries in Framingham.
The report cards contain the following information:
- Student enrollment
- Teacher qualifications
- Student achievement
- Performing comparison to other districts and schools
- Progress toward improving proficiency
In the same way that data enable educators to make better decisions about teaching and learning, data can also help parents and other community members work more effectively with educators and local school officials. The more parents and community members know about the academic achievement of tier children and their schools, the more likely they are to be involved. - DESE Regulation: State and Local Report Cards under Title I, Part A A-2.
