This month I am presenting to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education the FY2015 Quarter 4 progress reports and the Annual Evaluations on the four Level 5 schools (Paul A. Dever Elementary School and UP Academy Holland in Boston, John Avery Parker Elementary School in New Bedford, and Morgan Full Service Community School in Holyoke.)

In keeping with reporting processes throughout this first year of Level 5 school implementation, each receiver and Superintendent Durkin submitted self-reported updates on the implementation of the turnaround plan for their respective schools from April through June 2015.

In addition, as part of a thorough progress monitoring system for Level 5 schools, ESE commissioned American Institutes for Research (AIR) to conduct an independent review of each school's progress toward implementing the turnaround plan and generate Annual Evaluations. In order to meet the statutory deadline to provide annual written evaluations of each Level 5 school by July 1, it is important to note that as these reports are presented prior to the end of the school year; progress towards meeting each school's Measurable Annual Goals (MAGs) will be provided in a comprehensive report when all data are available in the fall of 2015.

The Department is working with the receivers to adjust school year 2015-16 implementation so that we build on current year successes and address concerns that arose this year. In addition, in light of the district-wide Holyoke receivership, the 2015-16 approach at Morgan will be coordinated and integrated with district-level initiatives.
