From the Commissioner
Today I visited the Troy Howard Middle School in RSU 20 as one of the final stops this spring on my Promising Practices Tour. The Belfast school is undergoing a transformation, using data, strong leadership – most notably at the principal level – and customized learning to engage students and improve proficiency and progress.
Even after months on the road for this tour, I continue to be incredibly energized by the practices schools are implementing that show promise and move forward our shared vision of an evolving education system that puts students at its center.
