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 2018-2019 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 2018-2019 school year is $117,202.  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.  Potential Title II projects will be related to proficiency-based education, professional development, and educator effectiveness.  This year’s Title II allocation is $19,796.  These funds will be used to pay for Reading Recovery training, traveling to workshops and conferences, book studies, and out of district meetings.


 Anyone who would like to provide input on this draft proposal or on the goals related to the projects, you can provide input on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 5:45PM during the school board meeting in the Schenck/Opal Library or call the office at 746-3511.
