Dear Pembroke Public Schools Families,

During the week of January 6, 2020, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Public School Monitoring (PSM) will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Pembroke Public Schools. The Office of Public School Monitoring visits each district and charter school every three years to monitor compliance with federal and state special education and civil rights regulations. Areas of review related to special education include student assessments, determination of eligibility, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team process, and IEP development and implementation. Areas of review related to civil rights include bullying, student discipline, physical restraint, and equal access to school programs for all students.

In addition to the onsite visit, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The review chairperson from the Office of Public School Monitoring will send all parents of students with disabilities an online survey that focuses on key areas of their child’s special education program. Survey results will contribute to the development of a report. During the onsite review, the Office of Public School Monitoring will interview district staff and administrators and conduct onsite observations.

Parents and other individuals may call Jesee Kihiko, Public School Monitoring Chairperson, at (781) 338-3745 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, the Department will make the necessary arrangements.

Within approximately 60 business days after the onsite visit, the review chairperson will provide the Pembroke Public Schools with a report with information about areas in which the Pembroke Public Schools meets or exceeds regulatory requirements and areas in which the Pembroke Public Schools requires assistance to correct or improve practices. The public will be able to access the report at

Box Tops News

The box tops program is going digital! If you still have the old box tops you clip- Keep sending them in like before. If your product has a box top that says to scan it- you must download the Box Tops app, set up an account, and then scan your store receipt. It automatically finds your box tops items and credits the school. Pro-tip- Try to get in the habit after every shopping trip to scan the receipt. (it has to be scanned within 14 days.) Remember each box top (coupon or digital) is worth $0.10- they add up quickly! Last year we made over $1500 for Bryantville!!! Thanks for your help and support!
