Homeless Liaison Elisha Morris, Director of Special Services, is the homeless liaison for MSAD #11. It is the responsibility of MSAD #11 to notify the citizens/parents of the district, on an annual basis, that educational services are available to students classified as homeless. If you need further information to determine the rights available to homeless students in our district, please contact Elisha Morris at 582-7366, or your building principal. MSAD #11 CHILD FIND POLICY MSAD #11 seeks to ensure that all children within its jurisdiction are identified, who are school-age five through the school year in which they turn 20 and who are in need of special education and supportive assistance, including homeless children, state wards, state agency clients, students who have been suspended or expelled, children attending private schools, receiving home instruction, children incarcerated in county jails, children who have the equivalent of 10 full days of unexcused absences or seven consecutive school days of unexcused absences during a school year, highly mobile children (including migrant or homeless), and children who are suspected of being disabled and in need of special education and supportive assistance even though they are advancing from grade to grade. MSAD 11 shall provide child find during the first 30 days of the school year or during the first 30 days of enrollment for transfer children. If evidence of child find activities and a statement of the results can be found in a child’s cumulative record, or MSAD 11 has reason to believe the child has previously been identified as a child with a disability by another SAU, in state or out of state, child find is not necessary. MSAD #11 is responsible for Child Find for resident students attending private or public schools through public tuition payments or public contract and shall meet this duty either through appropriate arrangements with the receiving school unit or through direct child find services by district personnel or contracted personnel. MSAD #11’s Child Find responsibility shall be accomplished through a unit wide process which, while not a definitive or final judgment of a student’s capabilities or disability, is a possible indicator of special education needs. Final identification of students with disabilities and programming for such students occurs only after an appropriate evaluation and a determination by the IEP team. This Child Find process shall include obtaining data on each child through multiple measures, direct assessment, and parent information regarding the child’s academic and functional performance, gross and fine motor skills, receptive and expressive language skills, vision, hearing and cognitive skills. MSAD #11 may schedule child find activities during its annual kindergarten enrollment to assist in planning for necessary special education and related service at the start of the school year. If screening occurs in the spring prior to school entry, MSAD #11 will refer the child to the regional Child Development Services (CDS) site within 10 school days. If the Child Find process indicates that a student may require special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education, the student shall be referred to the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) Team to determine the student’s eligibility for special education services. School staff, parents, or agency representatives or other individuals with knowledge of the child may refer children to the IEP team if they believe that the student, because of a disability, may be in need of special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education. Such a referral should follow the school unit’s pre-referral and referral policy.

July 8, 2021 Hello Gardiner Middle School Families, It is an honor to reach out to all of you to introduce myself as the new principal of Gardiner Regional Middle School. I am very excited to be joining the MSAD 11 team and am looking forward to getting the opportunity to meet with all of you and your students. We are planning a meet and greet for families in August to come and get the opportunity to meet me in person before school resumes. More details will come once we pin the date down; so, please keep a look out for that communication towards the end of July. I am coming to GRMS from the Lewiston school system where I opened two schools for the district, one an elementary school and the other a 7-12 alternative education program. Prior to my time there, I was in Virginia both in the Virginia Beach area as well as the DC metro area where I worked with students in Pk-12 both as a teacher and as an administrator. My teaching background is in theatre arts, secondary English, and special education. I love that I have such a wide range of experience as I believe it makes me a stronger leader who truly understands and values the development of students academically, socially, and emotionally. I love what I do and I value relationships with students and families as one of the most important factors to a school’s success. When we all work as a team, the students truly benefit from the care, understanding, love, compassion, and encouragement we provide them. I look forward to this journey with you and the things we will do together that will continue to ensure the Gardiner Regional Middle School remains among the best that Maine has to offer! Please feel free to reach out to me by email at ssims@msad11.org or by phone at 207-582-1326 here at the school. I am so very excited about our future endeavors together. With Falcon Pride, Dr. Sara Sims
