Hello Rangeley Community Members,

We are actively engaging stakeholders from all over the district in developing a Portrait of a Learner, a collective vision that articulates our community’s aspirations for every student in Rangeley Lakes Regional School. Our Portrait of a Learner will serve as North Star for our schools, bringing our district together with a shared vision.

You are a valued member of our community, and we need your voice and perspective. We invite you to join our Portrait Design Team, a group of people, who will share ongoing input, and together inform our Portrait of a Learner.

Over the next few months, the Portrait Design Team will explore the following questions:

● What are the hopes, dreams, and aspirations that our district stakeholders have for our young people?

● What are the skills and mindsets that our children need for success in this rapidly changing and complex world?


● What are the implications for the design of the learning experiences—and equitable access to those experiences—we provide in our school systems?

Save these dates! Our Portrait Design Team will meet four times to design the Portrait of a Graduate, and each meeting builds upon the other.

● Meeting 1: Wednesday, October 12, 2022 from 4:00-6:00pm – RLRS Cafeteria

● Meeting 2: Wednesday, October 26, 2022 from 4:00-6:30pm – RLRS Cafeteria

● Meeting 3: Wednesday, December 7, 2022 from 4:00-6:30pm – RLRS Cafeteria

● Meeting 4: Wednesday, January 11, 2023 from 4:00-6:30pm – RLRS Cafeteria


We want our Portrait of a Learner to be locally developed and globally positioned. We hope that you’ll bring your unique perspective to this collaborative process. Our shared aspiration is that all of our students have an educational experience that prepares them to be lifelong learners and contributors today and tomorrow.
