Maine’s accountability system provides a broad picture of public education throughout Maine and highlights those schools that need additional support. Maine has selected five measures of school accountability called indicators.
These indicators include Chronic Absenteeism, Academic Progress, Progress in English Language Proficiency for English Learners, Academic Achievement, and Graduation Rate. RSU 40/MSAD 40’s progress for each indicator is reported on the following four levels: Emerging, Developing, Meeting, and Excelling.
