About Us

The Washington County Consortium for School Improvement is a partnership of the school districts of Washington County, the University of Maine at Machias and the Washington County Community College. It was founded by the Superintendents of Schools in 1994 with the goal of helping to improve the schools in the county. It is designed to support the learning of educators and their students, including those with special needs.


  • To improve education for all students, especially to increase literacy and technological skills across the curriculum
  • To prepare students for post-secondary education and careers


The Washington County Consortium for School Improvement's objectives were decided upon by those who did a feasibility study and include:

  • Building a capacity for inquiry and change in local schools;
  • Building a capacity for short-and-long range planning for change in local schools especially as it impacts students learning in the basic core subjects;
  • Connecting local schools with existing resources that will help with change and develop new resources;
  • Arranging for trainings of teachers and administrators;
  • Building a capacity for networking within the county and outside the county;
  • Disseminating information about change efforts throughout the county;
  • and; over time, developing the consortium into a partnership with other local, state, and national resources.

Grants Administered by the Consortium include:
