Comprehensive Needs Assessment Survey

The Comprehensive Needs Assessment is a new requirement for all districts in the state of Maine. It must be submitted no later than July 1, 2018. This is a 5 year plan. We will not have to go through the process again until 2022. This Schoolwide Plan is a comprehensive reform strategy designed to improve the entire educational program in a Title I school. Title I provides financial assistance to schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Its primary goal is to ensure that all students, particularly those who are low-achieving, demonstrate proficient and advanced levels of achievement of the Maine Learning Results. The plan consists of: Data Collection and Analysis, Professional Practice, Personnel Policy and Procedures, Family and Community Engagement, Accountability, Coordination, Evaluation and Reevaluation and Fiscal Requirements.

We would like to share the sections of the plan that have been completed so far. Please look over the information and if you have input that you would like to add, we welcome you to do so! After each section, there is an area where you can add your feedback.
