At Wednesday’s School Committe meeting, Superintendent Dr. Charles Gobron reported on the results of Neary’s 1:1 Pilot survey. He told members that parents are overwhelmingly supportive of a pilot. He acknowledged that some parents are still opposed to the pilot.
Gobron didn’t state how many parents said they would opt in or out. He declined to offer any specifics at this time. Instead he said that the comments shared require thoughtful consideration.
Next week, the Technology Committee will meet to discuss survey results and next steps.
After the meeting, Gobron was interviewed by the Metrowest Daily News. You can read that article for more detail.
Earlier in the same meeting, Gobron announced that the Southborough Schools will be hosting a community forum to explain the state’s MCAS transition.
All Massachusetts public schools are required to adopt the Common Core curriculum framework. The Mass Department of Education is working on a plan to ensure future testing will be consistent with it.
To help parents understand what is happening with MCAS, the Superintendent’s office recently held a well-attended forum in Northborough. On November 21, 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Trottier Middle School, they will address the Southborough community.
