Maine DOE continues to provide support and announces 2015-16 Schoolwide Annual Review list

Following the continued success and additional support through scheduled fall schoolwide information sessions, the Maine DOE continues to provide guidance to Title I schools as they prepare for their Annual Schoolwide Plan Review or submit an initial Schoolwide Plan, due July 1, 2016.

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, the following schools currently approved as Schoolwide are asked to submit a copy of their comprehensive evaluation of the schoolwide program by July 1, 2016. Non-submission of the evaluation may impact the Schoolwide status of the school.
