            HELP YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL TO BE A GOOD PARTNER:
                                      YOUR FEEDBACK COUNTS!
 
 Dear Parent/Guardian:
 
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) invites you to complete an online parent survey and share your feedback with your child’s school.  We want to know about the efforts made by your child’s school to help you feel welcome as a partner in your child’s education.
 
You have received this letter because you have a child with a disability in a selected Massachusetts school district.  The purpose of the survey is to see how well your child’s school communicates with you and promotes your engagement in your child’s learning. The survey should take ten minutes to complete. Survey results will provide your child’s school with answers about parent-school partnership, transition, and family training. Research shows that schools that are good partners with families have better outcomes for the students they serve.  Your feedback will allow us to learn how effectively schools partner with parents. ESE will not collect any personal information regarding your child on this survey. Your survey answers will remain anonymous.
 
To begin the survey, you will be asked for your child’s school district. If more than one child in your family attends school in the district and has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) during the current school year, please fill out one survey per child.
 
You can complete the survey by going to:
 
ttp://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2303122/Parent-Involvement-Survey-2016
 
Please complete the survey and submit it by Friday, April 1, 2016.
 
If you are a parent/guardian needing assistance reading and interpreting this survey in a language other than English, Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian/Creole, or Vietnamese please seek assistance from your school district.  
 
If you have any questions on this survey, please call Martha Daigle at: 781-338-3366. 
 
Thank you very much in advance for your help with the survey.
 
 
UPDATE:  After careful review of the district self-assessment, the audit team will move forward with a targeted review of the Governance and Administrative System standards: Leadership and Governance, Human Resources and Professional Development, and Finance and Asset Management.  They have scheduled the onsite portion of the review for March 14th to March 17thWe look forward to meeting with the audit team and hope that the findings validate our work as a district and provides ways in which we can improve.

To the Sutton Community:
 
The Sutton Public Schools has been selected for a targeted district review under the provisions of Chapter 15, Section 35A, by the Center for District and School Accountability at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  The targeted review will focus on three of the six district Standards of effective practice defined in state regulation.  The six Standards are (1) Leadership and Governance; (2) Curriculum and Instruction; (3) Assessment; (4) Human Resource Management and Professional Development; (5) Student Support; and (6) Financial and Asset Management.
 
The district has been given a self-assessment tool that must be completed by the district before December 4, 2015.  The state will then take three to four months to review the information to determine which three areas to assess.  At this point, the district will be required to provide a significant amount of documentation prior to the four day site visit by a team of auditors from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.  The audit team will pour through the documentation, observe practice, and meet with different stakeholder groups (educators, parents, school committee members, and town administrator or other town officials). 
 
I have attached the District self-assessment tool for you to view.  Once we know more about the site visit plan, we may be in need of community volunteers to participate in focus groups. 
 
Best regards,
 
 
 
Theodore F. Friend
Superintendent of Schools


   


Greetings:

I am pleased to welcome you to the Sutton Public Schools’ website.  The Sutton School Community has been working diligently to develop and improve upon the existing educational, social and community based practices to best serve the children of Sutton.
·         The District Learning Team (DLT) developed the new Mission, Vision and Learning Principles that will be used to guide all educational and budgetary decisions.
·         The Curriculum Review Committee developed a five-year Strategic Plan for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment.  An Updated Strategic Plan for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment has been put into place as of September, 2015.
·         Within the strategic plan three district-wide goals for curriculum, instruction and assessment were developed for the 2014-2015 school year
·         The Superintendent Goals for 2015-2016
These initiatives are designed to move the Sutton Public Schools toward 21st century learning standards for all children in our community. Improved educational opportunities would not be possible without the generous broad-based support of the entire staff, families, community members, DLT, PTO, PAC, booster clubs, SEFT, and business community at large. I greatly appreciate all the support provided by all members of the Sutton Learning Community as we continue to explore ways to improve the educational experience for every child who walks through our doors. Please remember, education is a journey not a race.
Theodore F. Friend
Superintendent of Schools
