I am writing to thank [everyone] for the time that you spent to ensure that the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE)’s program review of Special Education, English Language Learners and Civil Rights went well. The schedule for the program review went very well. Principals took the time to walk the DESE representative through each building and highlight the programs and what was being observed. Each of you took the time to welcome DESE into the building and you prepared Burlington highlights for your interviews. I am expressing a sincere thank you and say that it is great to work in Burlington with you.
