    36. 36. 1. BPS continues to show average growth (a year ofgrowth after a year of instruction) at all levels2. We need to continue our focus on finding multiplemeasures to indicate student progress and successconcretely to parents and students.3. BPS needs to continue to adjust our curriculum to theCommon Core and the migration from MCAS toPARCC.
