Dear Families,

I appreciate your patience this summer.  There is much to do in preparation for Pre-K.  We have experienced some delays over the course of the summer.  In light of these delays, we have decided to push the start date of Pre-K to Monday, September 11, 2017. 

This will give us the necessary time to have everything ready to welcome your children into Pre-K.  Class rosters are being filled and in the near future you will be receiving letters from your child’s classroom teacher.  I will also reach out soon to inform all of the date and time for the Open House that we have each year.  This is a wonderful opportunity for your children to see the classroom and meet their teacher.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

*RSU 13 STRATEGIC PLAN 2013–2018*

Beginning in September of 2011, a Strategic Planning Team -- comprised of representatives drawn from our six communities, the staff, the school board, and the administration - convened to lead a process focused on developing a five-year strategic plan for our newly consolidated school district. 

Areas of focus highlighted in the planning process included:  teaching and learning; recruitment, retention, and evaluation of staff; financial matters; facilities; community engagement; and long-range development. The Strategic Planning Team also solicited a wide range of input from community and faculty members through surveys; parent, faculty and student meetings; and open community forums.

The resulting plan was adopted by the RSU 13 School Board by a unanimous vote at its regular meeting on March 7, 2013, and now stands as a blueprint for action in identifying priorities and establishing credible work plans for guiding the district toward excellence over the next five years. Importantly, the plan also is designed to be updated periodically with indicators of progress included in the strategic plan section – Measuring Our Progress and Effectiveness (pages 21-28).
