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 2020-2021 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 2020-2021 school year is $128,145.60.  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 $22,318.85. 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 $11,751.60 allocation in Title IV funds will be used to provide student supports and academic enrichment. The Title V allocation, in the amount of $15,357.48, will support other title programs, classroom instruction, and college and work readiness, 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 Wednesday, July 29 at 6:00 pm during the school board meeting held at Schenk High School or by calling the office at 746-3511 by July 29, 2020.


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.
