Welcome back! I am thrilled to have joined the Duxbury Public Schools and spent a busy summer acclimating myself to the district and preparing for the students' return earlier this month. Our school year is off to a great start, and it has been so nice to witness the wonderful learning taking place in our classrooms already this year. Throughout the 2018-19 school year, it is my hope to provide you with curriculum updates, professional development topics, district initiatives, and to share news from the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education here in the "Curriculum & Instruction" section of our Duxbury Public Schools' website.
We are currently working on a new district Strategic Plan that will provide us with far reaching, yet achievable goals for the next several years in the Duxbury Schools. Leading us through the Strategic Planning process will be Mr. Timothy Farmer, consultant and retired Superintendent from Sharon Public Schools as well as former Interim Assistant Superintendent for Duxbury Public Schools. Please look out for information about community Focus Group events that will allow parents and community stakeholders input in this important Strategic Planning process. We hope to have a completed Strategic Plan by the mid-point of the current school year.
The state has released the results of the 2018 Spring MCAS assessment, and parent reports with individual student results will be sent home in the coming weeks. We will be presenting our district results to the School Committee in the near future.
Throughout the year, please feel free to contact me at any time with questions about curriculum, instruction, and assessment in our schools.
Danielle E. Klingaman, Ed.D
Assistant Superintendent of Schools
