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.
