Chronic Absenteeism (CA) means a student has been absent from school – either excused or unexcused – 10 percent or more of the days she or he has been enrolled. The district generates official Chronic Absenteeism reports four times a year. This means, for example, that a student who is enrolled for all 182 days and is absent 19 times or more (even if all are considered ‘excused’ absences) is on the year-end CA list. Also note that a student is considered absent unless he or she is present for at least one half of the school day.

The District Demographic data is based upon the October 1st enrollment data that is filed with the State Department of Education each year.

Smarter Balanced

Smarter Balanced

In 2015-16, the Smarter Balanced assessments were administered statewide to students in Grades 3-8 in English language arts and math.  The Smarter Balanced assessments are administered on computers and are designed to measure progress towards grade level skills through reading comprehension, writing, and math questions that require students to demonstrate that they truly understand the content.

The State of Connecticut released the results of the 2015-2016 administration of the Smarter Balanced Assessment on Friday August 19th, 2016. Statewide results on the Smarter Balanced assessment show that 55.7% of all students met or exceeded expectations for ELA/Literacy and 44% met or exceeded expectations for Mathematics. In Manchester, 40.4% of students met or exceeded expectations in ELA/Literacy and 29.8% met or exceeded expectations in Mathematics.

Please pay particular attention to the number of students being tested in any given grade level or band as results may seem inflated when fewer students are accounted for in a particular group (ie: male/female).

Smarter Balanced Results 2016



The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) released preliminary results of the 2015-16 Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) Science for grades 5 and 8 and the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) Science for grade 10 on September 6, 2016. Compared with last year, students in grades 5, 8 and 10 showed increases on the science exams. Statewide, 59.6 percent of fifth-graders, 60.2 percent of eighth-graders, and 47.3 percent of high school sophomores performed at the Goal level or higher.  In Manchester, 45.2% of fifth grade students were at Goal or above, followed by 43.3% of eighth graders and 26.7% of high school sophomores.
