A Message From Our Assistant Superintendent
Welcome to the website for all things teaching and learning in the Milford Public Schools. I am pleased to offer a site that will serve as a tool for all staff, students, families and community members. Whether a staff member is curious about professional development opportunities or a student or a parent wants to see a specific curriculum map or a community member would like to learn more about district improvement planning, this site should be able to accomodate all of these inquiries.
During the 2017-18 school year, the district identified four major areas to focus our improvementefforts. Those four areas include growth focused instruction, social emotional learning, continuous learning and equity and access. This site offers many opportunities to explore each of these areas and how the district is addressing each one. You will find that there are numerous ways that we are working to improve. We intend to use these four focus areas as a means to advance the overall educational experience for all of our students.
There are a lot of great things happening in the Milford Public School district. Over the course of any given year, our students are exposed to a broad range of learning objectives based on specific standards set by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Although we are continuously revising our curriculum maps, through this site, visitors can get a general sense of the experiences students can expect to have in our schools. Our teachers work collaboratively to ensure that the lessons that they are delivering and the corresponding assignments are appropriately rigorous and relevant for each student. One of our priorities is to maintain high learning expectations for each student so that every student grows academically, socially and emotionally.
Staff development is critical to the success of our students. Ensuring that our staff is provided with the resources and training they need is essential. We are working hard to provide new teachers with a comprehensive three year induction and mentoring program that provides them with a foundation for which they can build a successful career in Milford. Collaborating with staff, administrators, neighboring district partners and outside consultants, we strive to provide all
staff members with professional learning opportunities that are aligned to staff, school and district improvement plans.
Working in the Milford Public School District has been a wonderful experience. I have learned and continue to learn many new things about education, leadership, school climate and culture and community building to name a few. I welcome any and all feedback. I value any suggestions for improvement that you may have. I look forward to working with all of you to deliver the students of Milford the world-class education they deserve.
