DESE Comprehensive Review Scheduled for May, 2023 

The DESE Comprehensive Review is scheduled in May, and will now take place Monday - Friday,  May 1 - 5, 2023.

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has contracted with the American Institutes for Research (AIR) to conduct a district review of Wachusett Regional School District. All districts will eventually undergo this review, and are randomly selected each year.

The purpose of the district review is to provide formative and actionable feedback on district practices, enabling district leaders to reflect on progress and strengthen staff and student performance.  This is a great time for Wachusett Regional School District, prior to development of our next District Strategic Plan, to reflect on programs and practices, and it will be great to obtain an outside viewpoint on next steps to have all our students realize their highest potential!

Here you will find a letter which was sent on 3/3/23, and contains further details and information about the Focus Groups and Instructional Observations.  The only change to this letter is that the classroom/instructional observations will now take place through Friday, May 5, 2023.

I am also including a link to a Draft Schedule for the week.  Principals will be informed of any changes in advance.

Thank you in advance for your support and participation throughout this process!
