Schools to get report cards

REGION

Wondering how good the schools are in your town? The MCAS scores are a key indicator. And the state on Tuesday will begin releasing a deluge of MCAS information.

The state Department of Education is tentatively scheduled to release Tuesday the list of schools that are “expected to be identified for improvement, corrective action or restructuring.”

The state level MCAS results will follow a few days later, sometime in mid-September, but no date has been announced yet.

Schools in the western suburbs traditionally do well on the tests, but the goals are being elevated every year. By 2014, the state wants all students able to score proficient or better on both the math and English language arts portions of the exams.
