The vision of RSU2 is to be a system of student-centered learning.
The 4-6th grade concert has been postponed due to the pending snow storm. The 4th -8th combined concert will be held on Thursday, December 19th, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Forty students from RSU2 high schools and middle schools gathered with 40 students from Messalonskee on March 31st to talk about what makes our schools work well and what needs to improve to make our schools more effective for student learning. Student facilitators helped run the daylong conference, held at the Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta. Following much discussion about schools and learning, the final activity had students working together in groups to create an ideal school. The RSU2 school community can be proud of these student leaders who shared serious ideas about improving our schools and who made a commitment to take on a leadership role in school change.

Two years ago, the New England Common Assessment Program replaced the Maine Educational Assessment (MEA). Listed below are the scores of our students on the October 2010 test. This test is given annually to students in grades 3-8.
RSU #2 is sending you this information as one way to fulfill our obligations under the “Parents’ Right to Know” requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has been designed to help your child achieve more in school.
The law requires that all teachers must meet a specific, federal definition of “Highly Qualified” in order to teach in schools that receive federal funding. As you know, our school receives federal funds to support the programs we offer to your child.
Additional information on the NCLB Act, as well as on the qualifications of your child’s teacher is available on request. Please contact the Office of the Superintendent at 622-6351 if you have questions or would like further information. Working with parents is an important aspect of our efforts to help students learn and we welcome your interest.
Your child’s teacher is dedicated to the success of every child in the class. I thank you for your continued support of your child’s education and encourage you to communicate with his or her teacher on a regular basis so that together we can provide your child with the best education possible.
