This school had to make up for the previous school missing IEP deadlines, however in setting up the meeting they set it up with my ex wife, even though I initiated the referral and kept at them for missing deadlines. They also did not invite the previous year teacher in order to show adverse effect to qualify my child for the needed services and my child went almost a year from referral to being identified as the current teacher had only had him a few days do had nothing to offer to help him in getting the necessary help.

My younger son (now 4th grade) has Asperger's Syndrome, I have worked closely with the school staff to get him the support that helps him succeed in school. The teachers and support staff are very encouraging.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maine used the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math and in grades 5 and 8 in writing. The NECAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maine. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
