Stakeholders Group Meeting #1

On October 10th, the first Stakeholders Group meeting was held at the MSAD #6 District Office. Facilitators are Paul Penna, principal of Bonny Eagle High School, and Krista Poulin, Assistant Curriculum Coordinator.  An invitation went out to all parents, and staff members working in MSAD #6. Students in our middle and high school were also asked to join.  There were approximately 45 folks in attendance at this first meeting!

The mission of this diverse group is to research, discuss, and come to a decision regarding the educational direction of MSAD #6---do we want to move forward in becoming a standards-referenced, standards-based, or proficiency-based school district?  The MSAD #6 school board will be looking for a recommendation in May 2014.

During this first meeting, the facilitators provided background information, showed short videos to elicit feedback and discussion, and gathered input and ideas from the participants.  Rich dialogue was had, openly and honestly, about our current system, student learning, and success for ALL students.

If you didn't attend this first meeting but are interested in joining the group, please email Krista Poulin at kpoulin@bonnyeagle.org or call 929-2307.  The next meeting is November 5, 2013 from 5:00 to 6:30 at the MSAD #6 District Office.
