A Letter from the Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Betsy M. Webb:
Dear Bangor Residents:
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) mandates that all states and school units provide an annual report card that shares the achievement and progress of students and schools as well as information about graduation rates and the qualification of teachers in the school unit. The data gleaned from the report card serves to inform school and district improvement initiatives. In addition, the data can assist parents and community members in working effectively and productively with educators to support student achievement and meets the requirements of federal ESSA legislation.
If you have questions about the ESSA Report Card or the data presented, please contact your child’s school principal or teacher or the Office of Instruction at 992-4167.
Thank you for your continued support of the Bangor School Department. We value the partnership between the schools and community. By continuing to work together in the best interests of our students, we can provide an excellent academic experience for all our students PreK-12.
The district or individual school report cards can be viewed at the Maine Department of Education ESSA Dashboard.
