Dear Hadley Families,
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released the 2017~MCAS~results. School districts will receive parent and guardian~MCAS~reports on~October 24th. Parents and guardians should expect to receive the reports shortly after the district receives them.
The Department has made several resources for parents available on its~website.~The Department will continue to add resources and information over the next few days and weeks.
I will present an overview of the Next Generation~MCAS, as well as district results, at the~October 23rd~School Committee meeting.
Please note that performance levels for~MCAS~in grades 3-8 have changed. Scaled scores have also changed from the 200-280 scale used previously (and still used for grade 10) to a scale of 440-560.
DESE has indicated that, in general, the new standards for Meeting Expectations are more rigorous than the standards for reaching the Proficient level on the legacy~MCAS. DESE has further stated that 2017 is a baseline year for the new test in grades 3-8, and spring 2017 scores should not be compared to previous years' scores. Results do not mean that students learned less; the next generation~MCAS~measures in a different way. Score distributions statewide look more like Massachusetts' 2015 NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) results.
If you have questions after you receive your child's score report (on or around the week of~October 30th), please do not hesitate to contact your child's principal or my office.

Information Our Nurse Leader~
Unlocking last week’s surprising fact
Last week we learned that research has shown that resilience, the ability to recover from stressful experiences is actually common.~
Being resilient does not mean that a person doesn't experience difficulty or distress. Emotional pain and sadness are common in people who have suffered major adversity or trauma in their lives. In fact, the road to resilience is likely to involve considerable emotional distress.
Surprising fact of the week
Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have.
Resource of the week
See what the staff at the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University say about the science of resilience.
Stay tuned to learn what resilience, if not a trait, actually is.
