NCLB Report Card

Signed into law December 2015 by President Obama the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) reauthorized the fifty (50) year old Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 by replacing key requirements of the outdated No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001. Beginning in 2016, the U.S. Department of Education took the first steps to implement ESSA.

Please visit the Maine Department of Education’s (DOE) Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) website for more information or to view Maine’s Consolidated State Plan and subsequent Amendment. If you are interested in specific information on RSU 9’s progress toward meeting the requirements of Maine’s accountability system, please visit the Maine DOE’s ESSA Dashboard.

If you are interested in the academic performance of RSU 9 students on State Assessments, that data is searchable on the Maine Educational Assessments Dashboard. Please note that the most recent data is from the 2018-19 school year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maine DOE is not administering statewide summative assessments and all assessment windows are closed. 

For more information, or if you are unable to locate a resource, please contact RSU 9’s Curriculum Coordinator, Laura Columbia or call at 207-778-6571.

Note: ­­­­­­­­Mt. Blue Regional School District utilizes all assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students. Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment program, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing. If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.
