The School Board hereby adopts the system of learning results and the Maine Department of Education’s applicable rules. The learning results system is intended to serve as a foundation for education reform and to provide assessment of student learning, accountability and equitable opportunities for all students to access the content standards. The Board recognizes that the legislative intent of the learning results 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 learning results system has 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 to make them consistent with the intent and goals of the learning results system.
The Board directs the Superintendent to develop a plan and timeline for implementing the learning results system and any appropriate administrative procedures. The Board further directs the Superintendent to report to the Board on a regular basis on progress toward implementing the learning results system.
