The Augusta School Department’s Curriculum Mapping Leadership Team has given the nod to open our site for public viewing. Parents  and students are now able to search by course, subject or grade and browse district classes that are taught in our Pre-K-12 schools.  You will be able to review the standards, content, and skills for each district map you browse. These maps are always a work in progress and will continually change to reflect  current standards and instructional practices.  Please contact your child’s teacher or building administrator for any additional information you may require.

BartlettAAmanda Bartlett:  In 2012 this entrepreneur launched Bartlett Inspection Services (she’s now head of Augusta Housing Authority) with a passion to help low-income housing administrators ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors have safe homes. A UMA grad, Amanda previously worked at MaineHousing where she investigated substandard housing conditions and helped define a corrective action plan. A Kennebec Leadership Institute grad, Amanda is also very passionate about her community: she’s a member of the Augusta School Board, Chair of the Friends of Lithgow Library, former Vice-President of the Augusta Downtown Alliance, and co-founder of a new non-profit, Literacy Lane. And she is the proud mother of two boys.



   

 

The Augusta School Department utilizes a mass communication system known as a “Phone Burst” and/or “Email Burst”.  This allows us to inform the families of our students about snow days, late starts or early releases due to inclement weather and emergencies.  The phone burst will leave a message when your call is not answered.  Please make sure to listen to the message before you contact the office.  Following a phone burst, central office will get up to 100 calls from people who don’t listen to the message first.  Once you have heard the message and have further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.  Thank you for your cooperation.
