Schoolwide Plan due July 1, Department continues to provide additional support

Following the success of the February webinar and regional schoolwide information sessions, the Maine DOE continues to provide guidance to Title I schools as they complete their Annual Schoolwide Plan Review, due July 1.

A Schoolwide Plan is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to improve the entire educational program in a Title I school. Its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement of the Maine Learning Results.

In an effort to further align the Schoolwide program with the No Child Left Behind application and school improvement efforts, all schools currently approved as Schoolwide are asked to submit a copy of their comprehensive evaluation of the schoolwide program by July 1. Non-submission of the evaluation may impact the Schoolwide status of the school.

A copy of the updated Schoolwide evaluation template and guidance regarding how to successfully complete the process can be found here.
