As the School Committee discussed MCAS scores Tuesday night, the high scores of the Asian subgroup were highlighted.
“The Asian tiger has roared in Marlborough," said School Committee Member Mark Hediger.
The overall scores of the district have not seen the levels of improvement required by the state. However, the various subgroups of Marlborough students performed differently than the general population of the Marlborough School District. The full data of the state has been included in photos in this story.
The effort of all students needs to be supported at home, said Hediger. The school district needs to work with parents to make this happen, he said.
“It’s a partnership. The schools are a partner with the children at home and the parents,” said Hediger.
School Member Hennessy praised the interaction individual teachers foster through newsletters that are sent home to parents. These newsletters allow parents to understand what their children are being taught and make the transition to a new grade easier, she said.
