Report Card Letter to Parents

  • March 2020

    Dear Families:

    Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school’s report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas. A link to our school’s report card is available at WVES Report Card 2019.

    The report card includes multiple measures of a school’s performance – more than just MCAS scores. It represents a new way of looking at school performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities, and more.

    Report cards are designed to be useful tools for everyone connected to our school. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the school is doing well and where there is room for improvement. Community and education leaders can use the information to better understand how to support students and our school.

    You will notice on our report card that we are a school that is making progress towards targets for most accountability measures. To improve student performance in our school, we are focusing on academic achievement for all students in Math and ELA and adding additional resources to support our high needs students. In the past year, our high needs population, which includes students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged, and English Language Learners, has grown by 10%. With targeted supports and resources at West Villages, we will continue to support academic growth for all students. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and school, and we are grateful for your continued support.

    If you have questions about our school’s report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact us at 508-420-1100.

    Sincerely,

    Mery Faial-Zaynoune, Principal
