RESPONSE REQUESTED: Development of Medway’s 3-year Student Opportunity Act Plan (Supporting Learning in Mathematics). Medway Public Schools is developing a plan to submit to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education called a Student Opportunity Act (SOA) Plan. This is a 3-year plan that is intended to focus on a subset of the district’s overall initiatives. Each district’s plan should include identifying evidence-based programs and strategies that will improve students' educational experiences and outcomes, including English learners, students with disabilities, and low-income students. Based on an analysis of student outcomes and feedback from families, school leaders, and faculty and staff, Medway’s SOA Plan for 2024-2027 will focus on enhancing our practices around mathematics education. To finalize this plan, we are reaching out to seek your feedback to shape it. Thank you for participating in this brief survey by March 1. We will be sharing the DRAFT SOA Plan with School Councils, the Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC), and the Medway School Committee throughout March and submitting our final plan to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education by April 1, 2024, per requirement. The link to the survey can be found here: https://bit.ly/3SYIQod. Deadline is March 1, 2024. Please get in touch with Gabby Abrams, Assistant Superintendent, at gabrams@medwayschools.org with any questions.

Community Bulletin - January 19 edition
One of the things people enjoy about alcohol is that it lowers inhibitions. This creates the experience of finding it easier to do certain things: public speaking, approaching someone we find attractive, getting over social anxiety, and the like. However, the more we rely on a substance to create a chemical effect to help us with our behavior, the more we need the substance to do the same thing and the more anxious we feel about doing those things without the substance. This is a recipe for psychological dependence. The longer road of practice and discipline will increase anxiety in the short term but, over time, will lower your anxiety response and increase confidence and proficiency. You will not need a substance to do those things. Plus, you get to avoid things like hangovers, liver damage, weight gain, risk of diabetes, etc. Thank you to Brian Crockett of Brian Crockett Counseling for this Brain Boost. #buildingbrightbrains
