Winthrop Public Schools' Marzano Teacher Evaluation Model
Maine Education Assessment Results 2015-2016
Below is the student proficiency data. In looking at where Winthrop Public Schools have brought students in relation to what other districts in the region are doing, I am thrilled with the overall results of the information. The Maine Department of Education website has a new interactive feature which allows viewers to compare districts in one chart; below, you will find all of the districts in the Kennebec region and the proficiency percentages by subject for each. Also included is the state average. What I am proud to say is that we lead all of the other districts in all three subject areas: math, science, and ELA with regard to student proficiency percentages. I cannot say enough about the direction this district is headed! I am so proud of all of the work that every educator is doing toward the achievement of these results. I am equally proud of the leadership our principals take in heading the charge. I offer my thanks to each of our staff members for their work with each and every one of our students-- regardless of his or her title or position in this district; it takes all of the spokes on the wheel to make the bicycle turn and roll efficiently and for those efforts, I thank our educators who well represent our profession and make our community proud.
