Maine DOE to Host Student Cabinet Meeting on Dec. 2nd 

What: The Maine Department of Education (DOE) has selected 32 Maine students to serve on its new Student Cabinet. The group of students are scheduled to meet quarterly with Commissioner Pender Makin to discuss educational opportunities, improvements, and policy with an in-person meeting to take place on December 2nd. 

The group is comprised of students from all 16 counties in Maine, grades 4 through 1st year of college, from diverse educational experiences. The students were selected through a rigorous team selection process by a committee of students, Maine State Board of Education Representatives, and Maine DOE staff including experienced Maine educators. 

Student Cabinet meetings are intended to allow students from different grade levels, backgrounds, and areas of Maine to share their opinions and offer advice about Maine’s education system with Maine’s Commissioner of Education and other leaders from the Maine Department of Education. The purpose of the Student Cabinet is to provide a forum for Maine students’ voices to be heard. 

The Student Cabinet will be co-chaired by Maine State Board of Education Student Representatives, Casey Maddock and Jaylee Rice, who were both instrumental in the formation of the Student Cabinet.  

Islesboro Central School (ICS) ICS recently celebrated the completion of their solar array. Installed by ReVision Energy, the array will provide the school with 40% of their electricity needs. Staff, students, and community members gathered in a flip the switch ceremony, on Oct. 9th. 

Fifth grader, Jaykob, flipped the switch towards a more fuel efficient school. ICS' curriculum includes a strong focus on best practices regarding sustainability. The solar array is a welcome source of study for students, shrinks the school's carbon footprint, and takes advantage of clean, renewable energy. 

Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts:
ICS is joining forces with ReVision Energy in efforts to send supplies to hurricane victims in the Bahamas. Our deadline to send supplies is Thursday, Sept. 19. If interested in helping out, please call ICS at 734 2251. 

We gathered a respectable amount of hurricane relief supplies and about $400. The money has been spent on more supplies. Everything has been consolidated, packed, and labeled. A volunteer will drive our cargo van to South Portland tomorrow. Well done, considering the short notice!
