Charlton District and Curriculum
Dudley-Charlton Regional School District encompasses the neighboring towns of Dudley and Charlton. As a whole, the district contains seven schools and just over 4,000 students. Dudley-Charlton’s mission is “to advance the knowledge and well-being of our children and our community.” Shepherd Hill Regional High School has developed school-wide 21st century learning expectations that all students are expected to meet. They include having the ability to express themselves in writing, reading and comprehending texts, speaking and listening effectively, using critical thinking skills, demonstrating cultural literacy (understanding distinct cultures and global perspectives), and being innovative and using problem solving.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charlton District Curriculum
When reading, students must be able to decode unfamiliar words, read fluently, comprehend what they are reading, and make inferences. Thinking critically involves collecting and organizing accurate information, understanding concepts and procedures, analyzing information, and making conclusions that are supported by evidence. The school publicizes the percentage of students that exceeded, met, are working toward, and are below expectations for each learning expectation.
All of the individual expectations has an associated rubric that determines students’ skills in each criterion based on whether they exceeded, met, were working toward, or were below expectations. The criteria for writing includes writing for different purposes and audiences, writing about relevant content, presenting ideas in an organized fashion, and using proper grammar and mechanics. These are designed to highlight both the strengths and weaknesses a child is having in class. The 21st century skills that students are assessed in include collaboration, creativity, and character traits such as adaptability.

Chalk Talk: Teacher Comments on Report Cards
One thing that teachers have to do that can sometimes be difficult is to generate comments describing how students are doing in class. Such comments may be ready-made, with teachers being able to select applicable ones for each student, but they are more credible if they are personalized by the teacher. These comments may appear on report cards, progress reports, notes to parents, etc. What kind of information should these comments contain? The most important thing is to make sure that the comment tells exactly what the student is doing well. Parents want to know how their children are doing, so it is important to be as specific as possible. A comment such as “the child does good work in my class” is too generic. Teachers may describe how the student always does his/her homework and turns in complete assignments on time.
