Coordinated Program Review – Invitation for Feedback

Aaron Polanksy, Superintendent-Director of the Old Colony Region Vocational Technical High School District was informed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education of an upcoming Coordinated Program Review that will be taking place this school year. As part of this Coordinated Program Review, Department staff will visit the district during the week of April 2, 2018. Such visits are routinely conducted by the Department to satisfy federal and state requirements for the periodic review of specific education programs and services in schools throughout the Commonwealth. The department is reviewing several programs during a single visit in order to use Department and school staff’s time most efficiently and to encourage strong connections among the programs.

Any member of the public may request to be interviewed by telephone by a member of the Departments visiting time. For more information read the full press release here.

Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018 2-hour school delay

There will be a 2-hour school delay this morning, Jan 30, 2018, due to the overnight snow that we received. This delay will allow the roads and school to be cleared this morning. The school day will begin at 9:45 a.m. and the buses will follow the same schedules, just 2 hours later.

 

Funding cancer research only a fraction of Old Colony student’s goals

Elana Sargent, a Old Colony  student from the Carpentry shop, has been raising money to combat a rare brain cancer, glioblastoma, since she was nine years old. She lost her father, John, to the same cancer at age 11. Sargent has developed her own method of raising money— she makes bracelets.

Selling the bracelets she made, she was able to donate $2000 to Lahey Health Clinic, where her father was treated.

After Sargent donated money to Lahey Health, she started donating to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Since she started making bracelets, she has raised close to $10,000 in donations overall. She reported that she generally donates $1,000 per month to Mass General.

To read more about Elana Sargents story, check out the article written by Old Colony’s own, Zachary McMahon, here.
