The Department of Special Services welcomes you to contact us for further information concerning any of the comprehensive support services available in RSU 68.

These services include:
  • English Language Learners (ELL) services for students whose first language is not English and are identified as being limited English proficient.
  • Section 504 accommodations for students who have a disability which significantly impacts a life function.
  • Support during disruptions in a student's education due to homelessness, military deployment of a parent/guardian or incarceration.
  • Special Education services for students identified as having a disability and requires individualized instruction in order to receive an appropriate education.

We are fortunate to have an outstanding staff, which works to provide appropriate educational programming to students who are identified with special needs.  RSU 68 staff includes a Social Worker, Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist and Physical Therapist contracted through Mayo Regional Hospital, along with a number of paraprofessionals and five special education teachers.

RSU 68 works closely with Foxcroft Academy to meet the special education needs of all secondary students that reside within the district.

RSU 68 destroys the special educational records of its special education students at the end of the school year in which the student turns 27 years old with the exception of the last IEP and evaluations.  Parents or adult students wishing to obtain these records prior to destruction should contact RSU 68 Special Services at (207) 564-6353 opt. 4.
