On November 22, 2017, Governor Baker signed into law the LOOK Act. The new law required the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to propose some regulations that are now available for public comment. Proposed regulations will have an impact on:

 

  • parent involvement
  • English learner education programs offered in districts
  • teacher qualifications
  • seal of bi-literacy opportunity offered to students

 

Our district would like to reach out to parents to inform them of the proposed regulations and how they can provide feedback. Please join us for a parent meeting at the Arlington Complex on May 7th from 3:45pm-5:00pm to discuss these proposed regulations.

 

Graphic that says Report Cards

Educators from across the district have been working to learn more about the benefits of Standards Based Grading and Reporting.  This two-year study will result in a new report card format for 2018-19.  Traditional letter grades do not tell parents which content and skills their child has mastered.  The new performance indicators will reflect progress on a continuum of standard mastery so educators, students, and parents will be informed of progress and skills.  We invite families to learn more by reading the FAQs below and by attending the next President’s Council Meeting on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at South Lawrence East School, 165 Crawford Street, Lawrence, MA beginning at 6:00 PM.
