NCLB Report Card

Gilbert School


Dear Parents and Community Members of Gilbert School:

 Over the past several years, the state of Maine has been using standardized tests to measures student progress in achieving state standards (Maine’s Learning Results): Parameters for Essential Instruction and more recently the Common Core Standards. In grades K-8, the tests are the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) and Maine Educational Assessment (MEA). For high school students, the test is the SAT Reasoning Test. The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires an annual assessment of state standards.

 Under NCLB, schools must show Adequately Yearly Progress (AYP) in the areas of reading and mathematics. Schools and school districts are required to share the results of state tests. The School Report Card is the format mandated for presenting this information. The purpose behind this letter is to provide access to student performance data and provide insight into what the data is saying.

 Our school data can be found using the following links:

 Furthermore, there are copies available in the school office. Please feel free to call 626-2491, or stop by the office to get a copy. A copy of the full district report is available at the Superintendent’s Office by calling 626-2468.

MEA Science Results

Gilbert students achieved at the 55% level in science on the spring Maine Educational Assessment (MEA).

 II.                Actions Taken

Teachers, coaches and administrators review and analyze the data on a regular basis. We implement programs and interventions to promote student achievement. We have implemented Reading First structures, Maine Literacy Partnership practices, and current best practices to support student outcomes.

 In math we use math mentors to assist classroom instruction and to support interventions. We also provide ongoing professional development.

 We are eager to share information about the progress our students are making with respect to NECAPs and MEA assessments.  

 Sincerely,

 Sue C. Dionne - Principal
