On Sept. 20, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released its 2013 information about school accountability, how our school is performing relative to other schools, and the progress our school is making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students. To access the Kane parent letter (three languages) regarding this information and the district- and school-level DESE “report cards,” see our NCLB Report Card webpage.

Parents: Starting with the 2012-13 school year, the district implemented a standards-based report card system. These report cards differ from those in the past; the new report cards reflect the Common Core standards embedded in the district’s new curriculum. Feedback on the report cards will be collected periodically to identify and develop revisions as needed. To access a parent pamphlet on the standards-based report cards, click:  English - Portuguese - Spanish. To access a glossary of terms and phrases, click: EnglishPortugueseSpanish.
