The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 is the current iteration of the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act), the federal government’s primary mechanism for holding public schools accountable, closing achievement gaps among different student populations, and supporting schools in improvement efforts. ESSA creates a long-term stable federal policy that gives states additional flexibility and encourages states and schools to innovate, while at the same time being accountable for results. This page contains information on two ESEA Title Programs that provide us with federal funds.


Each year the Maine DOE issues a report card for each district. These report cards summarize state assessment and accountability data for students in grades 3-11, as well as teacher qualifications. State law requires those to be made available to the community. Use the links below to download the Brewer School Department Report Card, as well as report cards for each of the schools.
