"City" piece on the middle- and high-school programs at the Governor Baxter Scho
"City" piece on the middle- and high-school programs at the Governor Baxter School for the Deaf in Falmouth. Academic standards for these programs fall far short of state requirements, according to a report by an on-site review committee released Feb. 7. The school, which provides Maine's only residential program for deaf and hearing-impaired children, was mandated by the Legislature in 2000 to bring its teaching standards up to a public-school level, but it hasn't. J. Duke Albanese, commissioner of the Maine Department of Education, has suggested that Baxter partner with accredited institutions as a way to meet state requirements, noting that legislative funding per student at Baxter was "substantial" and the funds should follow the student to subsidize contractual arrangements with other agencies.
