STUDENT ASSESSMENT

 

The RSU #74 Board recognizes that Maine law requires each school administrative unit to use multiple assessment methods to measure student proficiency in the content areas of the Learning Results and the cross-curricular Guiding Principles.  The RSU #74 Board also recognizes the value of assessment in informing and improving instruction.

 

Through this policy, the RSU #74 Board adopts and directs the Superintendent to implement and oversee an assessment system for RSU #74 schools that will accomplish these objectives.  The Superintendent shall be responsible for reviewing the assessment system for compliance with applicable statutes and Department of Education standards.
