NCLB Report Card

Lincoln School


 Dear Parents and Community Members of Lincoln Elementary 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 office at school. Please feel free to call 626-2483, 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.

Teachers and administrators review and analyze NECAP data on a regular basis. We are determined to implement programs and interventions that will help our students reach proficiency in reading and math. We have Title I services in grade Kindergarten through sixth to support students who are reading below grade level as well as a Literacy Coach to work with staff.  We have developed a Title I Lending Library to support guided reading instruction in all classrooms and to provide interventions to low performing students

We are currently utilizing the district Math Coach to provide teachers training on implementing the Guided Math Model.  This instructional technique is designed to provide more small group, direct instruction in order to better meet the needs of students.  It also incorporates math stations/ centers to give students more of a hands on approach.  The staff as a whole is working to clearly identify the Common Core standards taught and mastered at each grade level and to develop instructional lessons to meet these standards.

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

Sincerely,

Heather Gauthier, Principal
