Preliminary data from the state MCAS exams could turn out to put yet another bright spotlight on the Revere Public Schools this coming fall.
According to data released at Tuesdayâ€™s School Committee meeting, district officials are hoping that they will be able to stake a claim on being a Level 2 District â€“ a designation that is pretty rare within the stateâ€™s urban schools.
â€œWeâ€™re hoping that the data would play out in a way that our entire district would move up to a Level 2 district, which would mean that each of our schools is either a Level 2 or Level 1 school,â€ said Superintendent Paul Dakin. Currently, Revere is at a Level 3, which is where most districts in the state are at.
Level 4 districts are designated to be watched and to qualify for additional resources. Level 5 districts are to be taken over by the state.
â€œWe are excited because this preliminary data does show that we have made continued progress on the testing we did last year,â€ said Dakin.
