FY18 Budget News
As superintendent, I am going to withdraw my recommendation to combine the 5th and 6th grades at Gill Elementary next year. The 6th grade anticipated enrollment has changed from 7 to 11 students and a combined class would now be at 27 students. I think this increased enrollment significantly improves the experience the 6th grade class will have next year. In addition, I feel a mixed grade 5/6 class of 27 would be an undesirable teaching and learning environment. I will continue working with the school committee to find the least negatively impactful ways to address our current budget gap.

Parent and Guardian Survey
Please share your valuable feedback! The district wants to hear from families who send their students to our schools and from those who do not. We recently mailed surveys to all families asking about their children's school experiences. The surveys are on a single sheet of paper and are accompanied by a pre-addressed and stamped envelope to be as convenient as possible. We encourage all families to provide us with your personal feedback about how our schools are doing. The information you provide will be invaluable for establishing our improvement priorities and helping to set the district's course for the next two or three years. Thanks for taking the time let us know how we are doing.
