CARMEL - Maine's Education Commissioner paid a visit to a Carmel middle school today.
Caravel Middle school hosted Commissioner Stephen Bowen as part of his "Promising Practices Tour".
The school was previously placed on a list in 2008, as a school that needed improvement.
Now 5 years later, Commissioner Bowen says the school's progress is encouraging.
Bowen says he's stopped by dozens of Maine schools. And hopes to share what he's learned at Caravel with other districts.
