Year in Review 2015-2016
A Message from the Superintendent of Schools
Dear Taunton School Community:
2015-2016 was another great year for the Taunton Public Schools! Whether in the classroom, in the science lab, on stage, or on the athletic fields, Taunton’s students once again demonstrated just how much our terrific young people can achieve through hard work, the strong support of teachers and families, and the investment of an entire community that truly values their education. This year in Taunton we continued to increase our graduation rate, PSAT/SAT participation rate, and extracurricular enrollment. Our talented students excelled on the regional and national levels in several prestigious arts, sports, business, and science competitions. Incorporating community input gathered through forums, surveys, and volunteer teams, we laid the groundwork for continued future success including the development of a Middle School Excellence/Innovation Program, the implementation of district-wide technology upgrades, and planning for several exciting facilities improvement projects. As 2015-2016 draws to a close, I want to personally express my appreciation to our educators and staff, parents and families, School Committee members, city leaders, and citizens for working together to make our district one in which all children are given the opportunity to learn and thrive every day. Thank you.
