Policy H301: Commitment To Learning Results
The Hancock School Committee hereby adopts Maine’s system of Learning Results. The Learning Results system is intended to serve as a foundation for education reform and to promote and provide assessment of student learning, accountability and equity. The School Committee recognizes that the legislative intent of the Learning Results system is to provide children with schools that reflect high expectations and create conditions where these expectations can be met.
The School Committee understands that implementation of the Learning Results system and the mandate to provide all students with equitable opportunities to meet the content standards of the system of Learning Results have broad implications for the school unit, including curriculum, budget, professional development, student assessment, professional evaluation, and graduation requirements. Therefore, the School Committee is committed to examining its policies and school system practices to ensure that they are consistent with the intent and goals of the Learning Results system. This will require a concerted and coordinated effort involving the School Committee, the Superintendent, administrators, teachers, parents, students, and the community.
The Superintendent will be responsible for implementing the Learning Results system, including development of appropriate administrative procedures. The School Committee further directs the Superintendent to report to the School Committee on an annual regular basis on student achievement and progress toward implementing the Learning Results system.
