District Report Card
The federal Every Student Succeeds Act, which replaced the No Child Left Behind Act, requires schools to make information about student achievement, school accountability and teacher quality available to the public each year. This information is provided in Report Cards developed by the Maine Department of Education on an annual basis. You will find links to the annual Report Cards below.
As measures of student achievement, Maine students in grades 3-8 participate in the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA), which assesses English language arts/literacy and math annually. High school juniors participate in the SAT for math and ELA/literacy. Students in grades 5, 8 and 11 also take the Maine science assessment.
To address the federal requirement for measures of school accountability, Maine has identified five indicators of school and student success. Those indicators include graduation rate, chronic absentee rates, proficiency of English language learners, academic progress in grades three through eight, and student achievement in math and English language arts K-12.
Information about teacher qualifications is provided on the Report Card as a tool to help parents understand the credentials of the teachers who are working with their children.
Parents are encouraged to contact building principals with any questions about information included in the Report Card. Also, more information about ESEA can be found at https://www.maine.gov/doe/dashboard
