Superintendent's Welcome!

Greetings from RSU #24,
I hope this monthly submission finds each of you ready for the change in seasons.  I am looking forward to the warmer weather that the spring season brings!  Please find below, the latest from the school district.
I am happy to report that we finally have a signed agreement with Nickerson O'Day to complete the sprinkler system cistern project.  The agreement has a completion date of June 2, 2023.  Our hope is to have graduation in the new school but we will have an alternate plan should the project not be completed on time.  This is great news and we finally have an end line in view for completion of the building project.
The Budget and Finance Committee has had its first two meetings and reviewed a number of budgets.  The scheduled dates for the remaining Budget Workshops are March 28, and April 12.   All meetings will start at 6:30 p.m. and will take place at the District Services Facility.  The budgets to be reviewed by the Committee will be posted prior to each meeting on our website at (Departments/Budget and Finance/FY24 Budget Development).  For those planning ahead, our district budget meeting will take place on Wednesday May 24.  The exact time and location will be passed along as the meeting approaches.
We are continuing to refine the school calendar to best meet the needs of students and staff.  There is a push to have June 16th as the last day of school for staff and students, understanding that pushing into the third week of June is not ideal.  In order to do that, we will most likely have to establish several Saturday dates for our students in grades 6-12.  This change will be presented at the April 4th RSU Board of Directors Meeting.  If there are formal changes made to the school calendar, these will be communicated as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your continued support of the school district.  If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].
