Dear Nashoba Families,
Tuesday evening, the architects from Kaestle, Boos Associates and the project managers from Skanska presented conceptual design options for a new Nashoba Regional High School to our community. On October 18, 2022, the school building committee will make a recommendation for the preferred concept to the Nashoba Regional School Committee. The committee members are soliciting feedback from the community on the design options. This is your opportunity to offer input.
You can provide your thoughts on the design options by watching the meeting at the web link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CZSFloESzA and then completing the feedback form. The feedback form will remain open until 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18, 2022. School Building Committee members and the Nashoba Regional School Committee have access to the community responses. Your engagement in the preferred design is an important step in ultimately bringing a state of the art high school to our community.

MCAS Parent/Guardian Reports Being Mailed Home
Today, Spring 2022 MCAS Parent/Guardian Report were mailed home to families. The MCAS Parent/Guardian Report provides families with their child’s results from the Spring 2022 Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science and Technology/Engineering, where applicable. Last year’s MCAS testing marked the first year of full test administration in grades 3-8 and at the high school since 2019. Due to the pandemic, MCAS tests were not administered in 2020, and in 2021 modified MCAS tests were administered with the scope of the tests shortened and the structure adjusted.
