Paula Bourque, the Augusta School Department’s K-6 Literacy Mentor had an article recently featured in February in the professional journal, Educational Leadership: Literacy in Every Classroom. It is titled Building Stamina for Struggling Readers and Writers. As many already know, Ms. Bourque’s Close Writing resource book was published by Stenhouse Publishers last year. The Augusta School Department is extremely fortunate to have such an extremely knowledgeable professional working along side our teachers.
Lincoln Elementary Kindergarten teacher, Brandi Grady will be one of four local teacher educators providing professional development to teachers on the topic of Integrating Science in the Curriculum from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 1 at the Viles Estate in Augusta.

Review of School Culture Survey results- In March, 2016, we developed 3 surveys which targeted students, staff and community/parent input. These surveys links were posted on the ASD website, Facebook and through school newsletters. Hard copies were provided to parents and students along with access to Survey Monkey web based system. The survey was closed on April 29th.
The Student and Community/Parent survey results were surprisingly better than expected. The staff results were as expected. These results still need to be shared with the School Board and are posted below. Building administrators will review results with their building staff and establish at least one building goal around the results.
