Our Strategic Plan
Vision 2020:  Planning for Student Success


In May, 2015, the School Committee approved the work of the Strategic Planning Team, resulting in adoption of "Vision 2020: Planning for Student Success", a five-year plan for the Yarmouth Schools.  We invite you to read through this document to see what we will be working on between now and the end of the 2020 school year.

Each year, the Superintendent of Schools will update the School Committee as to the district's progress toward meeting the goals of Vision 2020.  Updates will be posted here for public review.

Welcome to Yarmouth Schools                                                          Yarmouth Schools serve just over 1600 students in kindergarten through Grade 12 in the beautiful New England town of Yarmouth, Maine. Located ten miles north of Portland, Maine’s largest city, and bordered to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, Yarmouth is one of the more picturesque, yet accessible, communities north of Boston. Performance indicators of every type point to the Yarmouth schools being among the finest in New England, both on the academic scale and in terms of our co-curricular and community service offerings. Highly qualified staff, motivated students, and engaged parents are our greatest resources, complemented by significant instructional technology, community investment in education, and well-maintained, updated facilities. Our mission, “Empowering all students to create fulfilling lives in a changing world” directs our work each day, and we strive to send our graduates into the world ready to learn, work, and contribute positively in a dynamic society. For more information about our schools, please browse our website, or call 207.846.5586.

Safety of staff and students is a top priority within the Yarmouth School Department.  Our Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) was reconfigured in 2013 and is updated annually.  Staff and students participate in various drills and trainings each year, with identified staff and community members serving on the district's Crisis Intervention Team.  Although many parts of the CEMP are confidential for security purposes, this overview is posted annually for parents and community members.
