Fall Update 2018

Superintendent's Message

Dear Winchester Families:
The school committee recently approved our District Goals and Improvement Plan for 2018-2019. I am pleased that our district focus continues to be on ensuring healthy balance and wellness for our students. Additional goals focus on curriculum renewal, inclusion, building projects, and finances. Here is a link to the goals.

We are beginning the FY20 budget planning process. You may remember that the town had to dip deeply into reserve funds (free cash) to fund the current year's budget. It is likely that an operating override will be required to maintain our current programs and staffing levels for 2019-2020. The Select Board is expected to take up this issue after town meeting this fall, so please stay close to this critical issue.

We have lots to celebrate this month as we see many examples of success for our students, both in an outside our classrooms. Our recent MCAS scores were excellent for all of the district's schools. Winchester High School, Ambrose School, and Vinson-Owen Schools were named Schools of Distinction by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for MCAS performance. Only 52 schools in the state were named to this list. While we are proud of all of our students and teachers, it is important to recognize that standardized tests are only one small way we measure success.

As always, our district Facebook page is a good source of information. I also post frequently on Twitter (@JudithEvans1).
With respect, 

Judith A. Evans, Ed.D.
Superintendent
