Superintendent’s Report to the School Committee, 11/9/22

Strategic Planning Report

Earlier this week, I confirmed the participation of the 20 members of our Strategic Plan Working Group.  This group, which is made up of faculty, school leadership, and community members will serve as the organizers, data collectors, authors and co-leaders of this work.  They will explore and craft strategic objectives and initiatives, find consensus, and make recommendations for planning, communications, leadership, and resources.  The group will hold its initial meeting next week.  For more information, and to sign up for updates regarding our strategic planning process, please go to:

Middle and High School Pilot Schedule Review Update

In late October/early November, our Schedule Review Committee administered surveys regarding our pilot 2022-2023 school schedule.  We have collected responses from 95 faculty members (approx. 50%) and 1134 students (approx. 73%) and will be meeting early next week to review the responses and consider any possible changes to the schedule for both the short and long term. 

COVID Test Kit Distribution

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has announced they will make COVID Test kits available to all students and staff in Massachusetts schools for use over the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.  One test kit will be distributed during the week of November 21st and the second the week of December 19th.  Each test kit contains two COVID tests.  Building principals will be developing distribution plans in their individual schools and will be communicating these plans in the next week.

Fall Athletics in Tournament Play

We’ve had a very successful fall athletic season.  Our Field Hockey Team and Girls Soccer Team both played their round of 16 games on Wednesday, November 9th.  Field Hockey won their game and will play again on November 11th.  Girls Soccer also won and will play next on Saturday, November 12th. Volleyball will play its round of 8 game on Friday, November 11th at Dartmouth.  Girls Cross Country took third place overall and Boys Cross Country came in 5th place at the NEC Meet.  Both Cross Country Teams will be competing in the State Championship Meet on Friday, November 11th in Wrentham.  Cheerleading won the NEC Championship this past weekend and will move on to the North Regional Competition on November 13th.  Unfortunately, Boys Soccer and Football lost their tournament games this past week.  Football will continue their season at Revere on Thursday, November 10th and finish their season at home against Bishop Fenwick on Thanksgiving Day. I want to congratulate all of our student-athletes and coaches on very successful fall seasons. For the most up to date sports schedules please go to:
