Steering Committee Membership:

RSU 21 assembled an Educator Effectiveness Stakeholders Group that consisted of a majority of teachers. The Educator Effectiveness Group transitioned into the District Steering Committee which consists of educators, building administrators and district officials. Educator representatives on the Steering Committee were appointed by the RSU 21 Education Association and administrators were appointed by the superintendent.

The primary purpose of the Steering Committee will be to regularly review and refine the PEPG System to ensure it aligns with the goals and priorities of RSU 21.
