Students in grades 3-8 take these tests each Spring, and individual reports about the prior year test come out through your child's school in the late fall. Here is a link to MDOE's video: https://youtu.be/4l5FWxmArzU

RSU 12 convened a Communications Focus Group this week to discuss parent and community communication needs and ways that the district could improve its communication efforts. Parents and community members shared their ideas and experiences. Several themes emerged, most notably the desire to have consistency across classrooms and schools, to remember the importance of communicating to community members as well as parents, to invite volunteers into the schools, to create redundant communication methods, and to ensure hard copies of communications are available for those without Internet access. RSU 12 administrators are reviewing the feedback and working to develop a communication plan that addresses these issues. More information will come as this work continues.

We have had several people express interest in attending and are hoping to have a few more. Please RSVP to Deb Taylor if you can join us. ------------------------------------------------------------ RSU 12 would like to improve its communication efforts. We want to be sure that parents and community members know what is happening in our schools and that we are providing information in a way that works for them. In order for us to make improvements, we need your help. We would like to know what kinds of things you'd like to hear about and how we can best communicate. Please join me on Wednesday, October 10:00 from 5:00-6:00 pm at Windsor Elementary School for an informal discussion to provide some input about how we can improve our communication efforts. This will be an opportunity for you to share your ideas, thoughts about what you'd like to see, and positive communication experiences you've had that we can learn from. We will brainstorm topics that you want to hear about, how often you'd like to have communication, and what kinds of communication means (paper newsletters, website updates, mobile apps, etc.) you'd prefer. If you are able to join us, please RSVP to Deb Taylor at dtaylor@svrsu.org
