Keynote speakers Jeanette Deutermann, mom and founder of Opt-Out Long Island and Ricardo Rosa, professor of education at UMass, along with Brookline educators, will discuss MCAS testing, addressing questions such as:
What is MCAS? Is it required?
How has the MCAS changed public education in Brookline?
What are the facts about MCAS and equity?
Does my child really need to practice taking standardized tests?
Does the MCAS enrich or impoverish our children’s experience in the schools?
Presented by the Brookline Parents Organization, Citizens for Public Schools, and the BEU.

NEW FAMILY WELCOME POINT PERSON:
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
