Stakeholders #2

The second Stakeholders Group meeting was held on November 5th.  Participants took a look at video clips of kids in standards-based classrooms, talking about their learning.  Topics of discussion included Maine Public Law 669 (proficiency-based diplomas, a requirement for students in the class of 2018), some clarity around the difference between standards-referenced and standards-based educational systems, where "the standards" come from, and how a standards-based system would breed success for our kids and MSAD #6.

Questions that have surfaced so far...

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 9th at 5:00 pm.  We meet at the MSAD #6 Central Office building on Main Street in Buxton.  Please join us!
