Superintendent Recaps the 2016/2017 School Year

The Milford Public Schools had a full year of transitions and new hires but have "made a lot of headway" according to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kevin McIntyre.

During the June 8 School Committee Meeting, McIntyre have an end-of-year update on the highlights and accomplishments of the 2016/2017 school year.

"It was really a complete team effort," said McIntyre of the year's accomplishments. "The faculty and administration are all pulling in the same direction."

McIntyre spoke briefly about some of the highlights from this past year including:

• The "successful" opening of a new state-of-the-art, $60 million, 132,000 square foot Woodland Elementary School. "This was a huge undertaking that involved a lot of people working together," commented McIntyre. Part of that opening also included a shift of grades into different buildings with 5th grade moving to the new Woodland Building and 8th grade moving from Middle School East to Stacy Middle School.

• Restructuring of the middle school math program has allowed the percentage of 8th graders taking Algebra to increase from 20-25 percent to 52 percent this year.

• Executed a marketing and communication plan to share the academic and extra-curricular offerings at Milford High School. "We are seeing a decrease in the number of students choosing to school choice out of the district and an increase in retention across the board," said McIntyre.

• The addition of four early college dual enrollment classes for high school students to take college level courses with Framingham State University.

• Hired multiple administrative-level positions across the district including an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction (Craig Consigli), Director of Technology, Digital Learning and Innovation (Matthew Joseph), Special Education Director (Lucy Jenkins), a Preschool Director (Corrie Masterson), Woodland Elementary Principal (Tim Kearnan), and most recently the Milford High School Principal (Joshua Otlin).

• The implementation of a wireless network for the entire district in anticipation of the 1:1 initiative that will be rolled out in September for grades 3 through 9.

• Launched a new Social Emotional Learning Committee. "We are really starting to implement [Social Emotional Learning] practices across the board," said McIntyre.

• Milford High School received their 10-year New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).

McIntyre also laid out the goals that the administration will be working on next year including developing their long range and strategic plans, writing curriculum maps, and adding more Social Emotional Learning programs throughout the district.
