Commissioner's Update from the Maine Department of Education.
April 28, 2011

We heard you. You want fewer communications from the Department of Education. You want shorter and clearer information. And you want some predictability about when you will receive it.

Each week, we'll take the most recent Administrative Letters, news items and updates, and batch them into a weekly Commissioner's Update for your convenience. Let us know what you think!

— Stephen Bowen
