Superintendent's Welcome!

 
October 20, 2017
 
It is hard to believe that we are almost 2 months into the school year.  The start of the school has been exciting and things seem to be moving along very nicely in each of our buildings and programs.  
 
With the end of October approaching, the fall sports season is wrapping up across the district.  The Peninsula School Bulldogs were crowned the RSU #24 Middle School Soccer Champions.  The cross-country teams (from the middle and high school), golf team, and boys and girls soccer teams are coming to the end of their seasons within the next week or so.  The boys soccer team will be playing in a play-off game at Piscataquis Community High School on Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m.  
 
On November 7, voters of the RSU #24 district will be asked to weigh in on the decision to purchase our District Services Facility.  This is not an issue that the RSU Board has taken lightly.  After receiving feedback from the selectmen from many of our towns and considering that the vote taken last November was decided by a slim margin, it was decided to move forward with the referendum again.  Check back here at our website for an informational flyer to help voters make an informed decision.
 
The Sumner Memorial High School building project continues to move along.  Meetings are taking place with teachers and students to help understand what will be needed in the new facility.  In addition, we are waiting for the final facility study reports for each of our schools, which will also help to inform the new building project. 
 
In June, we will be graduating our first ever senior class with the proficiency-based diploma.  We have invested a huge amount of time and resources into refining this new system.  For further information, please check out this link http://www.rsu24.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=202331&type=d&pREC_ID=1043834, which will take you to the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment page for RSU #24.
 
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  I can be reached at meastman@rsu24.org or 422-2017.
