Dear Orono School Community,

Please join us Tuesday  (Oct 18) at 7PM in the OHS Library for a workshop/community discussion on the topic of “What does it mean to be a district that focuses on student growth and achievement?" We promise to keep this short and efficient (60-70 minutes). And past attendees at such workshops have found them positive, constructive and enjoyable. For those of you at OHS parent-teacher conferences (parents or teachers), we'd love to have you drop in even for 15 minutes.

We will be seeking the input of all stakeholder groups (parents, teachers, students, community members) on this important topic. Orono is lucky to have great teachers and we will start with some of them sharing their ideas and successes in this area. Next we will discuss as a group what it means to focus on student growth and achievement collectively (as a school, as a district). We hope this can serve as a touchpoint for decisions the board makes. And we would like your input on what this looks like.

This is likely to be the last board sponsored workshop until the budget meeting in May, so we'd love to have your input! (Of course we love to have you come to our regular board meetings too!).

Brian McGill
RSU 26 Board
