The goal of this study was to: (1) identify challenges faced by Maine school districts in providing high quality public education; (2) describe the magnitude of the challenges; and (3) identify areas where school districts were experiencing some success in meeting these challenges. The School Districts Challenge Survey was distributed online to all Maine’s public school district superintendents. Survey responses were collected from 68 superintendents representing leadership of both rural and non-rural school districts and districts of varying size.
