Ms. Bella Wong, Lincoln Sudbury, Superintendent/Principal was informed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education of an upcoming Coordinated Program Review that will be taking place this school year. As part of this Coordinated Program Review, Department staff will visit the district during the week of March 12, 2018. Such visits are routinely conducted by the Department to satisfy federal and state requirements for the periodic review of specific education programs and services in schools throughout the Commonwealth. The Department is reviewing several programs during a single visit in order to use Department and school staff’s time most efficiently and to encourage strong connections among the programs.
The Department’s Coordinated Program Review will address the following programs: Special Education, Civil Rights, and English Learner Education. After reviewing school district procedures for these programs, a Department team will make its onsite visit, during which it will review individual student records, interview administrators and teachers, observe instructional spaces, and conduct an online survey of parents. After the onsite visit it will prepare a report for the superintendent and school committee with detailed findings for each program.
