District results include all from the district who were tested. Results for districts with more than one school include students enrolled for the entire academic school year. Results for districts that only operate a single school include all students tested in the district.
Prior to 2015, school districts administered what is now referred to as the legacy MCAS exam. In 2015 and 2016, school districts had the option to administer either the legacy MCAS exam or the computer-based Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) exam. Starting in 2017, all students grades 3-8 were tested using the “Next Generation” MCAS which blended material from MCAS and PARCC.
