Maine School Administrative District 11 (MSAD 11) proudly serves students from Gardiner, Pittston, Randolph, and West Gardiner across six different elementary, middle and high schools. While MSAD 11 remains focused on improving educational efforts for its students across the district, MSAD 11 has also committed to making a few changes related to health for both its students and employees as a result of Impact2032’s Vision for Health.

More specifically, MSAD 11 will be refining its science curriculum to integrate explicit instruction in health and wellness education for grades prekindergarten through fifth grade. MSAD 11 will also relaunch the board-sponsored Wellness Committee with a redesign at the school level that will enable each school community to develop a leadership team who will be able to increases opportunities for health and wellness activities for staff and students while remaining aligned with the goals of the district, policy set by the Board, and work of the steering committee. United Way of Kennebec Valley (UWKV) also awarded funding to the school district last spring for a new program focused on supporting the mental health needs and increasing anxiety levels of students, staff and families, making MSAD 11 the first school system to ever receive a grant from UWKV.

Because of its reach to children and families across Kennebec County, MSAD 11 has the opportunity to play a vital role in furthering the progress of all three visions in health, education and financial stability — something the district clearly understands and plans to address through internal efforts.
