Dexter Regional High School has received an invitation from the Commissioner of Education, Susan A. Grendron, to attend the “Improving School Symposium” hosted by the Maine Department of Education. According to Principal Bruce Bailey, Dexter Regional High School has been identified as one of 25 improved performance schools in the state. Bailey said that they will send a team of four people to share what they think led to their success.
The “Improving Schools Symposium” will be held on April 12, 2005 at the Lucerne Inn in Dedham, Maine. The purpose of the event is to recognize the ongoing reform efforts in a range of “Improved Performance” schools, while gathering valuable information that may assist all Maine schools in efforts to improve student achievement.
The keynote speaker for the Symposium will be Nancy Love. Love is the Principal Investigator and Project Director of the Using Data Project and is author of Using Data/Getting Results: A Practical Guide to School Improvements in Mathematics and Science.
“Our school team members will have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments and share details of our school’s improvement journey with participants from across the state”, said Principal Bailey.
