Raise The Bar

The Freetown-Lakeville Regional School Committee joined a list of over 150 Massachusetts school boards opposing Question 2 on the November election ballot that would lift the cap on the number of charter schools.  At the October 12th school committee meeting the board approved a resolution opposing Question 2 based on the funding and the potential negative impact on the children of Freetown and Lakeville.    

Dr. Marlene Correia, Director of Instruction and Assessment, made a formal presentation to the school committee Wednesday, October 12, 2016 on the district MCAS results.  The principals will present school improvement plans on November 2, 2016, which will include actions to “raise the bar” with our scores. I remain committed to working with the teaching staff to see all of our students succeed on the next-generation of MCAS testing that will start in the Spring of 2017.        

We are excited to announce that we had over 40 senior citizens attend our senior breakfast in Freetown this past Wednesday as we continue to strengthen our relationship with the senior communities in both Freetown and Lakeville.  The school district will host our second senior breakfast event at Assawompset Elementary School this Wednesday, October 26, 2016. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Council on Aging in both towns.  

Our next school committee meeting is Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at Apponequet Regional High School beginning at 6:30 p.m.  I appreciate your support for all our schools and I look forward to our continued drive toward excellence.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call at 508-923-2000 ext. 1703 or e-mail me at
