State Testing

The AOS 96 School District utilizes 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.


AOS 96 and the parents/guardians of the students participating in activities, services, and programs funded by Title I Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) (participating children), agree that this compact outlines how the parents/guardians, the entire school staff, and the students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the state's high standards.                Read the Complete Current  AOS #96 ESSA TITLE 1 SCHOOL PARENT/GUARDIAN COMPACT here


The Board endorses the parent involvement goals of Title I and encourages the regular participation by parents/guardians in all aspects of the school system’s Title I programs. For the purpose of this policy, “parents/guardians” includes other family members involved in supervising the child’s schooling.

Teacher Qualifications :

As a parent/guardian of a student in AOS 96 you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law through the No Child Left Behind legislation allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires the school district to provide this information in a timely manner if you ask for it.

Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

Whether the State of Maine Department of Education has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects they teach. 

Whether the State of Maine Department of Education has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances. 

The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees and, if so, the subject of the degrees.
