RCMS Report Card Letter to Families

RCMS Report Card Letter to Families.pdf

March 3, 2022

Dear RCMS 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 school is doing in different areas. A link to our school’s report card is available at 02440410 - Randolph - Randolph Community Middle.

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. 

You will notice on our report card that last year, even in a pandemic, we still managed to assess between 94-100% of our students across grades 6-8 in Math, Ela and Science.  

When we compare our performance across the state in ELA, 75% of students in grades 6 and 7 and 80% of grade 8 students performed between partially meeting - exceeding expectations. This was only 2-5% points lower than the state. 

When we compare our performance across the state in Math, 74% of students in grades 6 and 8 and 75% of Grade 7 students performed between partially meeting - exceeding expectations. This was only 3 and 7% points lower than the state respectively.

We are particularly excited about the Grade 8 Science scores.  When we compare our performance across the state in Science, 85% of students performed between partially meeting - exceeding expectations. This was only 1% point lower than the state. 

To improve student performance in our school, we have implemented both math and reading intervention classes.  Teachers are committed to participating in targeted professional development to improve their knowledge of looking at  iReady, Dibels and Edulastic data to drive instruction. They are also committed to the GLEAM process to find the best ELA curriculum to meet the needs of our students.  The science team has already begun implementation of the OpenScied Curriculum.

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

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 Dr. Naia at 781-961-6243 or email me at wilsonna@randolph.k12.ma.us.

Sincerely,

Dr. Naia Wilson
