    Thank you to everyone who made last week's Silver Lining Celebration a huge success. Together we raised over $60,000 to help LPS purchase Interactive White Boards for our students and staff to use in their classrooms next school year. Our community's support was an impressive and humbling display of generosity from parents, grandparents, alumni, alumni parents, trustees, and friends of LPS. Special thanks to our anonymous donor who made a very generous matching gift to help us surpass our goal.

    Students with language-based learning challenges require a variety of accommodations, including technology, to access the curriculum. Interactive White Boards are considered Assistive Technology (AT) and can be of tremendous benefit to students with learning disabilities; AT can compensate for a student's skills deficits, needs, and areas of disability.

    If you could not participate but would like to contribute to this important initiative, you may do so by clicking here. These Interactive White Boards will replace overhead projectors and make content truly interactive, adaptable, and better suited for a range of different learning styles. They will help students to better engage with their learning and to make it visible.

    Thank you for your support!

    We had a very positive mid-cycle review with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. As you know, we participated in a virtual review this year on May 6th in which they interviewed staff, observed classes and went on a virtual tour of our buildings. Previous to that visit, we submitted requested documents and files as well. Our official report was sent this week with no findings, which means that all of the items they reviewed are in full compliance with DESE regulations. This is great news for us and a testament to all of the hard work that our staff put into the education, safety and well being of the students here at LPS.

    Testing for grades 5-10:

    MCAS testing begins next week with our 10th grade students. We are asking that all students get a good night sleep and eat breakfast. They will have the opportunity to take a snack break in their testing room in which they can order breakfast from the cafeteria or bring their own snack. Please do not schedule any appointments on testing days to ensure smooth testing sessions. Please reach out to Gretchen Petersen at gpetersen@learningprep.org with any questions.

    Class of 2022:

    Commissioner Riley sent out communication last week that the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to approve modified competency determination (CD) requirements for students in the class 2022 in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics.  

    "For students in the class of 2022, the CD in ELA and mathematics would be awarded upon district certification that the student earned full credit for a relevant course aligned to the appropriate curriculum framework in that subject matter, and has demonstrated competency in that subject.

    The recommended modification would allow students in the class of 2022 to receive their CD by earning full credit in an approved course and demonstrating competency in that subject, in lieu of earning a qualifying MCAS score."

    Students in the class of 2022 (11th graders) are not required to participate in MCAS testing this spring, but they can choose to do so to qualify for these awards: John and Abigail Adams Scholarship and the Stanley Z. Koplik Certificate of Mastery . They may also choose to wait until the next testing opportunity in fall 2021 to take the tests and attempt to qualify at that time.
