ESSA 2022 Report Card Announcement

essa report card announcement 2021

Dear GPS Parents, Caregivers, and 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 schools are doing in different areas. 

To see our district report card, as well as each individual school’s report card, click on any of the following links:

01140000 - Greenfield

01140005 - Greenfield - The Academy of Early Learning at North Parish

01140010 - Greenfield - Federal Street School

01140025 - Greenfield - Discovery School at Four Corners

01140035 - Greenfield - Newton School

01140305 - Greenfield - Greenfield Middle

01140505 - Greenfield - Greenfield High

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.

While we continue to celebrate that our students access the arts and digital literacy/computer science courses at a higher percentage rate than the state average, we continue to look for ways to improve student attendance so that students are present and able to access learning and engage in all curriculum. 

Also, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds (all schools in district except  AEL), you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach,

  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver,

  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher, and

  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

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 your building principal. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our schools. We see parents and guardians as critical partners in the success of our students, and we are grateful for your continued support.
