As the end of this school year approaches, kids start thinking about next year! We know they all wonder who their teachers will be next year, and for older students, what their schedule will be. We have much planning underway for a great 2020-2021 school year. Across RSU #34, we are not announcing classroom placements and schedules until later in the summer, likely in early August. Our RSU staff, regional partners, and state partners are working hard on preparing for safe and effective schooling in several different fall scenarios. Dr. Doty will do a brief public update Wednesday evening, May 20th, as part of the school board’s Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment committee meeting. For more information or a link to the meeting please email Jon.Doty@rsu34.org by Wednesday morning. Thanks for your patience, and please don’t hesitate to contact district or school administrators with questions about next year!

Dear RSU #34 Community, The RSU #34 School Board's Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment committee meets Wednesday, May 20th at 5:45 PM. The agenda includes two topics. First, updates, discussion, and public comment on planning for Title I services at our three elementary schools for the next school year. Title I services include Reading Recovery, Supplemental Instruction for Literacy, and Supplemental Instruction for Mathematics. Each of our elementary schools is preparing to apply to the Department of Education to provide Title I services more flexibly through something called the "Schoolwide Authority" model instead of the current "Targeted Assistance" model. And second, updates and discussion on the variety of scenarios for PK-12 school reopening in the fall, and how RSU #34 staff are flexibly preparing for those scenarios. For the videoconferencing meeting link, or to learn about other ways to be involved in planning, please email Dr. Doty by Wednesday morning: email@example.com

We have an awesome community, and there's so much great stuff happening to support kids and families! Here are a few images from this morning. Clockwise...12,000 meals ready for delivery (about 50 staff, bus drivers, and volunteers make this happen!)...Our staff preparing donated books for Little Free Libraries and other distribution (much thanks to Stillwater Montessori School, Literacy Volunteers of Bangor, Susan Bennett-Armistead, and OTO YMCA!)...Our IT staff has worked very hard to help kids and families get connected over the last several months, and continually fixes machines to keep kids learning...and another 60 3d-printed face shields to help the healthcare community. We have much to be proud of in Alton, Bradley, and Old Town! view image
