To the Weston Community:
The purpose of the annual report is to help Weston citizens develop an informed perspective on the performance of the Weston School System during the past 12-18 months.
What you’ll find in the report are:
1) Are our students learning and growing? (effectiveness)
2) How ready/able is our school staff? (leadership)
3) How are our schools adapting? (innovation)
4) Are we getting a good return on our investment? (efficiency)
The report has been in this format since 2010 and was changed in order to communicate more clearly about how our schools are doing, both relative to the past and to other school systems. We have included many charts and graphs and are working towards a “balanced scorecard” that will:
Measurement in education is not easy – learning is a people-intensive business with a great many variables that make it difficult to “prove” efficacy or efficiency. Nevertheless, we think you’ll find more than sufficient “evidence” here that demonstrates the Weston Schools are quite healthy and performing well.
We look forward to discussing the goals, strategies, and metrics for our school system in the coming months. To read the full report,go to Weston Public Schools Performance Reports and open the Annual Report.
