NCLB Report Cards
Each year the RSU provides "report cards" for each school within the RSU. These reports are created by the Maine Department of Education and contain information from state-wide testing completed by students in grades 3 through 8 and grade 11.
In each report you will find several pages of Assessment Data. The first pages will show Reading data by grade level, followed by Mathematics data by grade level. Data on each page is also broken down by subgroups. Each Report Card is based on assessment data from the previous school year.
Following the Mathematics Assessment Data pages, are the "Accountability Data" for each school. The purpose of the Accountability Data is to provide information about how well a school is progressing toward the NCLB goal of 100% proficiency by 2014. Part of the No Child Left Behind Act is the requirement that each school makes "Adequate Yearly Progress" (AYP) toward the 100% goal. The target percentages for the current year are shown at the top of each column.
The final page on each report provides "Maine Teacher Quality Data" for teachers in each school within the RSU. This data is broken into three areas: 1) highest degree earned; 2) percentage of teachers in the school with emergency or conditional certificates; and 3) percentage of core academic classes taught by a teacher who is not considered "highly qualified" in the state of Maine.
Report Cards for all Maine public schools are available on the Maine DOE website.
