This year, the Melrose Public Schools will be implementing the state’s new teacher evaluation system. What does this mean to your child—and to you? How will it affect teaching and learning, and how will it advance the Common Core standards? Come to the Melrose Education Forum at 7 p.m. this Thursday, January 31, to hear informative presentations and panel discussion featuring Superintendent of Schools Cyndy Taymore, Curriculum Director Margaret Adams, and Melrose school prinicipals. I am proud to be co-sponsoring this very important forum, together with the Melrose Education Coalition and Superintendent Taymore, and I hope you will join us.
