State evaluates Stoughton schools


The state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has released a review that highlighted areas where the Stoughton Public Schools can improve. School Committee chairman Joyce Husseini noted that the report prioritizes areas for growth and describes the district’s challenges in greater detail than the strengths. The state has called on Stoughton to implement tools to better assess student progress and to aid in teacher evaluations, to recruit more teachers and staff that reflect the diversity of the town, and to focus more attention on secondary classroom instruction and the high school curriculum. The review was based on state officials’ visits from Jan. 28 to 31, 2013, and included interviews with school officials, teachers, parents, and focus groups.
