Message from the Principal
To the Parents/Guardians of Dudley Elementary School Students:
The federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards which include information on student assessment, accountability, and teacher quality, as well as other information. Parents and other members of the public are provided with a snapshot of where schools and districts are succeeding and where there is still work to do.
Dudley-Charlton Regional School District’s school and district report cards for the current year are available for examination. They contain important information about teacher qualifications, student achievement on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests, and the progress we are making toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students.
Hardcopies are available at each of the libraries and town halls in Dudley and Charlton. Additional hardcopies are available at the District Office and at each school, or by request from building principals. Parents are encouraged to call directly for additional assistance.
Involving parents and families as full partners in the education of their children is a cornerstone of the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). When families support learning, children are more successful in school and school success helps children become successful adults. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our schools. Some of the ways you can become involved are:
- Encouraging your child’s learning at home
- Attending parent-teacher meetings and other special meetings
- Serving as a volunteer in our school or district
- Encouraging other parents to become involved
For more information about what we are doing to improve student achievement, please feel free to contact us.
