Maine Commissioner of Education Stephen Bowen will be visiting Deer Isle-Stonington High School on Monday, 2/25 to kick off his 2013 tour of Maine schools.  Commissioner Bowen will also use the occasion to release Maine's graduation rate and dropout data for the 2011-12 school year.  According to Commissioner Bowen, "the first stop on my tour of schools will be at Deer Isle-Stonington High School next Monday, the 25th. Graduation rates there have increased – significantly – for three years in a row through a combination of culture change, professional learning communities, and Student Assistance Teams.  In addition to meeting with teachers and others at the school, we’ll use the occasion and the location to release the 2012 graduation rates in Maine."
