Our admittedly ambitious goal at Groton-Dunstable is to integrate the recommendations of the NEASC Report, the Common Core State Standards, and the new teacher evaluation tool, set forth by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Schools, into a single, comprehensive and cohesive strategic plan. Thus, in theory, as a team we will be serving one master and not three. At Groton-Dunstable we continue to work to meet the needs of the 21st century learner; as we do so, we are confident that we can successfully implement the requirements of all three mandates assuming that resources are available and time is afforded to those who will lead the charge.
By all measures, Groton-Dunstable Regional High School is a high performing school district. The students arrive willing to learn and eager to succeed. At the core of the school’s success is the staff, who must be commended for their dedication to students, and their willingness to work hard, adapt, and remain flexible as the seemingly endless changes in education continue. As a school, we are proud of the work that has been completed, and confident with where we stand with regard to the recommendations; most are either well underway or have been completed.
