It is a pleasure to welcome students, parents, staff and community members to the start of a new school year. I am very excited to be the new Superintendent of Schools in RSU 68 and look forward to working collaboratively with all educational stakeholders to provide a top quality education that will best meet the needs of all students and prepare them for a bright and promising future. Our schools offer an engaging standards-based curriculum, learner-centered instruction, project-based learning, and broad-based services, programs, and activities that provide the appropriate level of support, enrichment, and rigor to enable all of our students to thrive.
As a community of learners, we strive to create and maintain a positive school climate that allows students to feel safe and maximize their focus on learning. The communities of Charleston, Dover-Foxcroft, Monson, and Sebec value and support learning at all levels and are fully committed to providing an outstanding educational experience for all learners in RSU 68.
Together we can foster a climate of continuous self-evaluation and improvement, as we strive for even higher levels of excellence in the upcoming years. I encourage you to visit the RSU 68 website often for updated information on our schools and the many initiatives and events. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our schools.

2013-2014 NCLB Report Cards
Below you will find links to view the 2013-2014 NCLB Report Cards for SeDoMoCha Middle School and Elementary School. The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law requires school districts to provide data annually to parents and communities on student achievement, teacher qualifications, and school accountability. RSU 68 is fully committed to creating learning experiences that best meet the needs of all students and provides the appropriate level of support, enrichment and rigor to enable all learners to thrive.
The 2013-2014 NCLB Report Cards show an increase in the overall percentage of students that are proficient in reading at both the elementary and middle school. In addition, the 2013-2014 NCLB Report Cards indicate an increase in the overall percentage of students that are proficient in math and science at the middle school and a slight decrease in the overall percentage of students that are proficient in math at the elementary school. Please keep in mind that the NCLB Report Card is based on the results of one assessment in a specific content area that is given at one point in time during the school year. Because the group of students at a given grade level are different from year-to-year it is difficult to draw conclusions based on one year of data. Consequently, our approach to data analysis also focuses on following the same group of students as they move from one grade level to the next.
As a school district, we are committed to increasing the proficiency levels of our students and to ensuring that they are able to demonstrate mastery of the content area learning standards for each grade level. Our formative and summative data from multiple assessments in each content area is used to inform our instruction and target students’ specific learning needs.
We hope you find these NCLB Report Cards helpful and informative. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (207) 564-6535.
