RSU 67 Special Services Providing opportunities for all learners to achieve individual excellence at their own pace and in their own way.
August 06, 2020 Dear RSU 67 School Community, I would like to extend a sincere welcome to our Special Services website and hope you find the information you are seeking. I am pleased to be a part of this wonderful community and school system. Having worked in the school district for over 25 years, I have had the true pleasure of meeting, educating and learning from many extraordinary learners and their families. As we continue to strive for excellence in education, our Special Services team is committed to providing services and supports that promote learning and success for all students based on their individual needs and interests. A variety of services are offered to assist students in reaching their fullest potential. Such services may be provided under Section 504, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), English Language Learners, and/or the Gifted and Talented program. Our goal is to provide educational opportunities for all students through an inclusive, collaborative approach. As we begin to reopen our schools for the 2020-2021 school year, we are all faced with unknowns and uncertainties during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our special services team continues to be committed to providing our students with the best possible educational experience while following the Maine Department of Education's Framework for Reopening Schools and CDC guidelines. In addition to general resources, you will find resources more specific to school re-entry, remote learning, and social emotional needs during COVID-19. These resources can be found in the Parent Resource Tab under the tab labeled "more..." at the top of this page. I hope you find them helpful as you talk with your child(ren) about the upcoming school year during this time of public health and safety. Enjoy exploring our website and please feel free to contact me with any questions. Take care and stay well!
