A weekly message from Superintendent Maureen Binienda

Superintendent's Message

At the completion of the 2016 graduation ceremonies, it was evident that Worcester Public Schools staff, family members, and students showed great pride in their accomplishments. It was especially inspirational for me to see the happiness in the faces of each student as they earned their diplomas. The experience of graduating over 1,500 students, listening to student speeches and shaking each hand confirmed my resolve to ensure that all future student classes graduate.

Congratulations Healthy Start Schools!
