MA DESE School District Review
Last year, Uxbridge Public Schools had been chosen to participate in the district review process. This review was conducted by the Office of District Reviews and Monitoring (ODRM) at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). A team of 6-7 professional staff from the state will spent approximately 8 hours per day in Uxbridge for four days starting January 13, 2020. Prior to their arrival, we had submitted our own assessment of our district based upon the six standards and 21 indicators of effective school districts, as well as, dozens of requested core documents.
Though this was a similar process to the recent NEASC process that our high school had recently gone through, there was no final grade for the district. Instead, the final report has provided us with objective feeback based on our school district's performance as measured by the standards, that we we will review using our strategic plan as a backdrop.
