Hussey School

NCLB Report Card


Dear Parents and Community Members of Lillian P. Hussey 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 afford 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 626-2461, 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.

 II.                Actions Taken

At Hussey School all staff works to support students as they move toward their next level of academic achievement.  To this end, we have many small group interventions and supports provided to students by our Title 1, Project Pride, classroom teaching and administrative staff.

To make informed decisions about instruction for all students the Hussey staff participates in monthly grade span meetings to discuss best teaching practices.  We are supported in this work by our district level math and reading mentors.

We are eager to share this information about the progress our students are making with respect to NECAP and MEA assessments.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Michelle Michaud-Principal
