Ever look for school info on the DESE website? Did you find it easy to navigate and full of useful information? We haven’t either. Here is your chance to speak up on what SHOULD be included when you look at a school or district “report card.”
Since 2007, DESE has published school and district report cards on their School and District Profiles page. With the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requiring new information to be included, DESE has given a makeover to the report cards and needs feedback. Here is your chance to ensure information most important to you is front, center, and easy to access.
You can take a sneak peak at the latest prototype here.
Got thoughts? The survey is available now and will remain open until September 21, 2018.
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education plans to publish totally redesigned school and district report cards in 2018.
P.S. Don’t forget your shared responsibility and pass this post along to your fellow MTA members!
