In the spring of 2018 Samuel L. Wagner Middle School and Reeds Brook Middle School were re-accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). This honor marks both RSU22 middle schools as two of only a handful of middle schools in the state to be accredited by NEASC. The goal of NEASC accreditation is to challenge school staff to develop a plan focused on continual school improvement. Both schools developed continual improvement plans aligned to the goals identified through a yearlong school self-assessment. School self-assessments were reviewed by an appointed NEASC collaborative conference visiting team.
At Wagner and Reeds Brook the staff and administrators are to be commended for the tireless efforts they are demonstrating to ensure our schools provide a safe and caring environment that is focused on all aspects of students’ growth. The visiting committee noted that the efforts that have already been demonstrated by the staff of the Samuel L. Wagner Middle School have demonstrated that ongoing efforts will continue to provide the best programming for the students of Winterport and Frankfort. At Reeds Brook the visiting team commended the staff for providing a strong, supportive, and challenging educational program for students.
Ten year continual school improvement action steps and a timeline were identified for each of our middle schools. The ‘Wagner Decennial Report’ can be reviewed at the following link – (Wagner Decennial Report).
Congratulations to our middle school staff for making this happen. We are very proud of this honor.
