East Millinocket Schools accepts funding through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act  (ESEA) of 1965.  As part of ESEA, East Millinocket Schools is required to provide a reasonable opportunity for public comment on the ESEA consolidated application and consider such comment prior to the submission of the application.  Our ESEA team, composed of a representative from all stakeholder groups, has been working to draft a proposal for ESEA funding for the 2019-2020 school year.

Our outline proposal is based on data gained throughout the school year and district, school, and ESEA goals.  Our final allocation in Title I funds for the 2019-2020 school year is $116,085.00.  These funds will be used to pay for interventionists and ed techs to help our struggling learners in K-4, provide NWEA testing to monitor learning for K-4, provide support for homeless learners, and provide an opportunity for parent involvement.  Our Title II allocation for this year is $22,208.00. Potential projects will be related to professional development and educator effectiveness and pay for Reading Recovery training, traveling to workshops and conferences, book studies, and out of district meetings. The $11,174.27 allocation in Title IV will be transferred to the Title 1 to supplement its programming. The Title V allocation, in the amount of $13,621.79, will support other title programs and classroom instruction as a result of the comprehensive needs assessment. 

Anyone who would like to provide input on this draft proposal or on the goals related to the projects, may do so Tuesday, July 17, 2019 at 5:45PM during the school board meeting in the Schenck/Opal Library or by calling the office at 746-3511 before July 30, 2019.



 The East Millinocket School Department utilizes all assessment data to help inform our practices at the district, school, classroom and individual levels for our students.  Although we encourage students and parents to participate fully in our assessment program, it is important to note that parents/guardians may opt their child out of state testing.  If you are interested in doing so, please reach out to your child's principal to make this request in writing.
