Curriculum — Currently we are revising the big four content areas — English language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. All areas are aligned with the Maine Learning Results, and we are working to pull in the Literacy Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. The members of each Vertical Team are also choosing graduation standards and freshman standards. Work on the horizon includes reviewing the Maine Guiding Principles and creating a PK-12 system for determining proficiency in these knowledge and skill areas.
Assessments — The next step will be to create common rubrics for the freshman standards. This will allow teachers to create their own summative assessments but the scoring will be consistent
