1.  Discussion of 10 best schools in Maine

          Attachment 1 

Donna Madore, Assistant Superintendent, passed out some information and research of where the Augusta School Department sits in the standings of Maine’s top 10 best high schools.  The schools are scored by the number of AP courses students take and how they score.  Also provided were the demographics of the top 10 schools compared to Cony and the 10 best school “districts” in Maine.  The committee discussed the data and results and ways to improve. 

2.  Attendance Reporting

          Attachment 2  

Attendance Reporting is part of the Graduation Improvement Plan.  A lot of work is done with truancy.  We’ve had a Reintegration Specialist for the last seven years, procedures were put into effect and truancy laws are followed.  The goal is to get an average daily attendance of 95%.  Currently, the district total is 92.9%.

 Meeting adjourned at 6:35 p.m.
