RSU 16 Curriculum & Assessment

The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires all states, school districts, and schools to provide annual report cards to parents and communities that include Maine Comprehensive Assessment System (MeCAS) data disaggregated into subgroups, attendance and graduation rates, status of ESEA Accountability, and information on “highly qualified” teachers. This report card also displays statewide academic achievement results in grades four and eight on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reading and mathematics assessments, as well as the participation rates for students with disabilities and limited English proficiency on the exam.

The NCLB Report Card details how Maine districts and schools are meeting the requirements of the federal NCLB legislation. More information about NCLB can be found at or by contacting the NCLB Clearinghouse at (207)624-6705.

NCLB School Reports

The Maine Assessment and Accountability Reporting System (MAARS) site provides information about how Maine’s students performed on state assessments in mathematics, English language arts/literacy, and science. There are two types of reports available:

  • Quick Reports provide tables of basic participation and performance data for each school, each district, and for the state as a whole. These reports contain links to ESEA Report Cards.
  • Interactive Reports are more detailed customized reports for users who wish to drill deeper. Users are able to view data about particular grade levels or particular groups of students. Data for a particular school or district can be compared to data from other selected schools or districts.
