The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that all states, school districts, and schools provide annual report cards to parents and communities.
The report cards are made available to the public in the following ways:
1. On the district web-site, https://www.svrsu.org/rsu-12-every-student-succeeds-act-information
2. A Public School Board meeting once a year.
3. Printed copies of these report cards are also available at central office upon request.
To view the 2017-18 report cards for RSU 12 and each individual school, visit the ESSA Dashboard.
The federal Every Student Succeeds Act also requires that all states, school districts, and schools provide an opportunity for public comment on the ESSA grant application. The public comment window for RSU 12's ESSA grant application is between March 1st and June 30th. We welcome all public comment. You may submit public comment at any RSU 12 school board meeting within this time frame.
Important - State Assessment Program Opt-Out Information: The RSU 12 School Department 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. Parents also have a right to request any district policies and procedures regarding student participation in state testing.
