The state does point out that the school district’s special education results did not make adequate yearly progress, particularly in math in grades 3-8. Grades 4 and 7 showed an increase in students needing improvement in math.

More detailed MCAS data is also available for individual schools (use the drop-down menu at upper right to pick school of choice) and  based on sex, race, income levels, etc.

Overall, the state has identified more than half of schools needing improvement, even though many others made progress.
