From Superintendent Jordan:
At approximately 9:45 AM this morning local authorities informed us that a bomb threat had been received specifically naming the Ridge View Community School. All students and staff were safely evacuated to Dexter Regional High School where parents were reunified with their children. A State Police canine bomb-sniffing unit performed an extensive search of the school and found nothing suspicious. The school will be in session tomorrow with an added Police presence. Thank you to all of the staff, students, and the Dexter Police Department for handling a very stressful situation in a calm professional manner.
In early March, 2018, the Regional Comprehensive High School Project Committee submitted an appeal regarding the scoring process for the High School Project. The response from the Maine Department of Education (MDOE) was received at Central Office on May 14, 2018. The MDOE wrote that there was “insufficient documentation to support the scoring decisions for Part 2, and as a result, Part 2 will be rescored”. The Department is currently establishing a new review panel and process to rescore Part 2 only of the Regional High School Project for all three applications. Part 1 of the application process will not be rescored. The Committee and Administration are awaiting further information regarding the new panel and process, and will share out any information as soon as it is available.
