This report card contains information required by the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) for our district and its schools including: student enrollment and teacher qualifications, student achievement, accountability, and the progress our school is making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students.

Enrollment and Educator Data (2012-13 School Year)

A highly qualified teacher is defined as a teacher holding a Massachusetts teaching license at the Provisional, Initial, or Professional level and demonstrating subject matter competency in the areas they teach. Core academic areas include English, reading or language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography. (Notes: Self-contained classroom courses have been weighted to reflect the core academic courses within them.)
High poverty schools are schools in the top quartile of poverty in the state. Low poverty schools are in the bottom quartile of poverty in the state.
Waivers are granted to unlicensed or inappropriately licensed personnel upon district request if the district was unable, after making a good faith effort, to find a capable, appropriately licensed candidate for a teaching position. Waivers are valid for only one school year. For more information on waivers, please see the section entitled About the Data at the end of this document.

2013 Massachusetts and Nationwide NAEP Results by Student Group
Average Scaled Scores and Percentages of Students at Each Achievement Level

NAEP, or the National Assessment of Educational Progress, is often called the "Nation's Report Card." It is the only measure of student achievement in the United States that allows you to compare the performance of students in Massachusetts with the performance of students across the nation or in other states. Students take the NAEP in reading and mathematics every two years. When reviewing these results, it is important to keep in mind that the NAEP results are based on a small sample of students across Massachusetts, not the population of Massachusetts students. For more information, please visit http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/naep/faq.html.

The following symbols are used to denote the NAEP achievement levels: A for Advanced, P+ for Proficient and above, B+ for Basic and above, BB for Below Basic. The symbol "#" means that the estimated number of students rounds to zero.

Participation Rates for Students with Disabilities and for English Language Learner Students

The NAEP program has always endeavored to assess all students selected for testing. In all NAEP schools, accommodations are provided as necessary for students with disabilities and/or English language learners. School staff who are familiar with these students are asked a series of questions to help them decide whether each student should participate in the assessment and whether the student needs accommodations.

About the Data


Enrollment and Educator Data

The waiver data included in this 2013 report card reflects only academic waivers issued during the 2012-2013 school year; it does NOT include critical shortage waivers. The schools included in the data are those in school districts and Horace Mann charter schools, all of whose teachers are required to hold an appropriate license per M.G.L. c.71, §38G. Important information about waivers:

  • Waivers are valid for only one school year
  • The data does not indicate whether a teacher taught under a waiver for the full year; many teachers receive the appropriate license during the school year
  • The district may apply for subsequent waivers, should a teacher not obtain licensure while working under a first year waiver, but must demonstrate that the educator is making significant progress toward obtaining the required license
  • The waiver percentage is based on the total number of individual for whom ESE issued academic waivers, divided by the total number of teachers in the district, as reported in the October 2010 EPIMS data collection
  • A single teacher on a waiver in a smaller district would have a greater impact than on a larger district and the waiver percentages, therefore, are not comparable between districts
  • Teachers in Commonwealth charter schools are required either to be licensed or to pass the teacher test, (M.G.L. c.71, §89 (ii) and 603 CMR 1.07), and are therefore not included in the data
  • Horace Mann Charter School teachers are required to hold an appropriate license (M.G.L. c.71, §38G) and are therefore included in the data

* Intellectual, Sensory/Deaf and Blind, Multiple Disabilities, Autism, and Developmental Delay. Additionally, a student must be reported as having a "high level of need."

SGP: Each student who participated in the MCAS ELA or Mathematics tests in grades 4-8 or 10 and who also took the last MCAS test in that subject receives a Student Growth Percentile (SGP) score. The SGP compares a student's MCAS score with the scores of all students in the state at that grade level who received similar MCAS scores in prior years. SGPs range from 1 to 99; higher numbers represent higher growth and lower numbers represent lower growth. An SGP of 75, for example, means the student's progress is higher than 75 percent and lower than 25 percent of the students in the state with similar prior test scores. This method works independently of MCAS achievement levels. Therefore, all students, regardless of the scores they earned on past MCAS tests, have an equal chance to demonstrate growth at any of the 99 percentiles. School and district growth percentiles represent the growth of the median, or middle, student in the school or district. Most school and district median SGPs tend to range between 40 and 60. Schools outside of that range are showing less or more growth than the typical school in Massachusetts. For more information, go to http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/growth/
