OXPS District Report Card 2013


Dear Parents and Families of the Oxford Public Schools,

We are pleased to provide you the Oxford Public Schools Full District 2013 “Report Card”. Report cards answer important questions about a district’s overall performance and contain specific information about student enrollment and teacher qualifications, student achievement, accountability, how our students are performing relative to others in the state, and the progress made toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students.

In this report you will find the following important information about our district:

Student enrollment and teacher quality: This section of the report card provides information about the students and teachers in our district as compared the state. If your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds, you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:
  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach
  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver
  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications
Student assessment on MCAS and other tests: This section of the report shows how our students are performing on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests as compared to the state by subgroup, by grade and by subject.

District accountability information: This section of the report contains important information detailing Accountability and Assistance Levels and Progress and Performance Index (PPI):
  • Accountability and Assistance Levels: Schools and districts are placed into one of five accountability and assistance levels (1-5), with the highest performing in Level 1 and lowest performing in Level 5. Our school has been placed into Level 3 because Oxford High School is designated as Level Three. The following links will take you to individual school report overviews for:
  • Progress and Performance Index (PPI): The PPI is a number that indicates our school’s progress toward narrowing proficiency gaps, or, in other words, helping all students reach proficiency and be prepared for success after high school. Massachusetts has set a goal of reducing proficiency gaps by half between the years 2011 and 2017. For a group of students to be considered to be making sufficient progress toward narrowing proficiency gaps, its cumulative PPI must be 75 or higher.
  • NAEP results for Massachusetts. NAEP is often called the “Nation’s Report Card”. It is the only measure of student achievement that allows for the comparing of performance of Massachusetts students with that of students across the nation or in other states.
The Oxford Public Schools is committed to improving outcomes for ALL students by strengthening our core instruction and the systems of support needed to ensure the success of ALL; improving educator effectiveness and enhancing leadership capacity; and maximizing organizational and fiscal efficiencies so as to support the highest quality instruction.

We are on the road to improvement and we will get there by offering rigorous programs of study, enriching and engaging learning opportunities, providing our professional teaching staff with the highest quality professional development and support and by partnering with families and the broader community to develop the college and career ready, “Student We Want to Graduate.”

OHS FIELD UPDATE
Due to the current conditions of the football playing surface, we unfortunately must move previously scheduled athletic events, both school and town, off the football field for the month of September.   We are in the process of updating the High School athletic calendar to reflect the new locations.
