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.
The 2016-2017 report card also includes 2015-2016 statewide results from the grade four and eight National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) reading and mathematics assessments as well as MEA participation rates for students with limited English proficiency and students with disabilities. Administration of the NAEP is through random selection and schools do not receive results other than state and national data.
Actually, the achievement data contained in the 2016-2017 report card is 2015-2016 MEA data compiled from the spring administration of the state accountability tests. The 2016-2017 report card meets the requirements of federal ESSA legislation.
If you have questions about the ESEA 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.
