In 2003, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation launched the Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Awards with that goal in mind. The program annually honors more than a hundred outstanding Western Massachusetts educators in Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties. It seeks to motivate teachers at all stages of their careers to aspire to excellence. Since its inception, 2000 educators have been recognized. Granby Jr./Sr. High School is pleased to announce that Molly Pinkney is this year’s outstanding educator and recipient of the Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Award.

Congratulations, Eric! What an amazing "Self-Portrait"! Art All State is a collaborative, rigorous art program that brings talented juniors together from all over Massachusetts once a year to work with artists to create a large-scale art installation. Eric Rakowski, one of Granby Jr Sr High School's top artists, was nominated by his art teacher, Beth Stapert, to participate in what turned out to be a "remote" collaborative venture. Eric, now a senior, and the other Art All State attendees, received all their art supplies in the mail this fall and participated live via zoom. Eric's "Self-Portrait" tape sculpture that focused on the theme of vulnerability as well as resilience, will be mailed back to the Worcester Art Museum for the upcoming, yet to be announced, big installation and show.

During the week of January 27, 2020, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Public School Monitoring (PSM) will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Granby Public Schools. The Office of Public School Monitoring visits each district and charter school every three years to monitor compliance with federal and state special education and civil rights regulations. Areas of review related to special education include student assessments, determination of eligibility, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team process, and IEP development and implementation. Areas of review related to civil rights include bullying, student discipline, physical restraint, and equal access to school programs for all students. In addition to the onsite visit, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The review chairperson from the Office of Public School Monitoring will send all parents of students with disabilities an online survey that focuses on key areas of their child’s special education program. Survey results will contribute to the development of a report. During the onsite review, the Office of Public School Monitoring will interview the chairperson(s) of the district’s Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). Other onsite activities may include interviews of district staff and administrators, reviews of student records, and onsite observations. Parents and other individuals may call Marc Oldenburg, Public School Monitoring Chairperson, at (781) 338- 6703 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, the Department will make the necessary arrangements.
