File: ADF: MSAD75 Commitment to Maine’s Standards  

Download

M.S.A.D. No. 75 hereby adopts Maine’s system of standards for student learning. The State’s system is intended to serve as a foundation for education reform and to promote and provide assessment of student learning, accountability and equity. The Board recognizes that the legislative intent of the State’s system is to provide children with schools that reflect high expectations and create conditions where these expectations can be met.

The Board understands that implementation of the State’s system and the mandate to provide all students with equitable opportunities to meet the content standards of the system of standards for students learning have broad implications for the school unit, including curriculum, budget, professional development, student assessment, professional evaluation, and graduation requirements. Therefore, the Board is committed to examining its policies and school system practices to ensure that they are consistent with the intent and goals of the State’s system. This will require a concerted and coordinated effort involving the Board, the Superintendent, administrators, teachers, parents, students, and the community.

The Superintendent will be responsible for implementing the State’s system, including development of appropriate administrative procedures. The Board further directs the Superintendent to annually report to the Board on student achievement and progress toward implementing the system standards for student learning.
