CACE Mission

The mission of the Central Aroostook Council on Education (CACE) is to assist member schools in providing a quality education for all students, PK-16.  In pursuit of this mission CACE has set the following priorities:

  • Strengthen the collegial/professional relationship and communication between public schools and the University.
  • Provide opportunities for the sharing of resources and maximizing the use of public funds.
  • Improve pre-service and in-service education.
  • Capitalize on the strengths of all partners
  • Seek grants to supplement dwindling local-state-federal funds.
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to examine research through the lens of daily school experience.
  • Develop a technology network to facilitate implementation of the CACE priorities.
