MWDN: Northborough, Southborough give superintendent top marks

Superintendent Charles Gobron got is annual performance evaluation at a joint school committee meeting last month, and the Metrowest Daily News reports the feedback was all positive.

School committee members praised Gobron’s work with the unions, as well as his leadership in securing state funding for school renovations in Northborough, and in revamping school websites. From the MWDN:

They also acknowledged his work navigating a recent controversy in Southborough over K-8 MCAS growth scores, which were lower than some other comparable communities.

“Dr. Gobron made a compelling case that too much of a focus on MCAS scores could cause our district to veer away from the goals of educating the whole child and focusing on 21st century skills,” they wrote, praising a statement he made to that effect at a recent meeting.

“It was a powerful moment for those of us who recognize the tremendous strengths of our district,” committee members wrote.
