    DESE Joseph Osgood Report Card

    Part I: Student Enrollment and Teacher Qualifications

    The first section of the report card provides information about the students and teachers in our school as compared to the district and the state. If your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds, 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
    • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications

    Part II: Student Achievement

    The second section of the report card shows how Massachusetts students are performing on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a test that allows you to compare the performance of Massachusetts students to students across the nation or in other states.

    Part III: Accountability

    To continue the improvement of student achievement in our school, we have been doing the following:
