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 district and school report cards are designed to show families how our district and each school is doing in different areas. The links to our district and school report cards are listed below. Please note that there are not MCAS results from last spring for grades 3-8 due to the Coronavirus closure.
The report card includes multiple measures of a district and individual school performance – more than just MCAS scores. It represents another way of looking at district and 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 community. Families can use the information to have meaningful conversations with us about what the district and a particular school are 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 entire school community. We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve the Franklin Public Schools. We see families as critical partners in the success of our students, and we are grateful for your continued support.
Finally, if your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds (Parmenter and Davis Thayer only), 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 district and school report cards, 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 the principal of your child’s school.
