Supt. of Schools Margaret Adams is focusing on four goals for the 2023-
2024 school year.
The School Committee recently supported these goals following a presentation by Adams.
The first goal focuses on ensuring the district's continuous improvement;
human resources management and development; and providing leadership for
implementing comprehensive plans that identify the district's most critical
Other related areas include outlining processes for continuous improvement
that will address those needs most effectively and determining the measures
that will be used to assess progress.
Goal two relates to strengthening the Hingham Public Schools' multi-faceted
procedures for hiring, recruitment, and retention, including strengthening its
partnership with the Massachusetts Diversity in Education Network.
Developing a comprehensive program evaluation of student services is the
third goal. The school district will participate in an evaluation of current Student Services programming that will outline short and long-term goals for
identified areas of improvement in order to ensure equitable and inclusive
learning environments for students with special needs.
Goal four relates to Adams' planned engagement in the second year of the
New Superintendent Induction Program, which empowers new superintendents
to accelerate student learning through strategic leadership. This will help
ensure the district's "continued focus on improvement."
