Superintendent's Welcome!

May 30, 2018

 

Greetings from RSU #24
 
It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is quickly approaching.  Class night at Sumner Memorial High School is on June 5th and graduation is June 7th.  The end of the school year for all students is Friday, June 15th.  Summer will be here before you know it! 
 
The new school building project continues to move forward.  We had our straw vote on May 1st and those in attendance voted to move forward with the current Sumner location for the new building site.  We will eventually seek approval from the state for this proposed site.  We are also in the middle of our space allocation work.  This is a collaborative project where we work with our architect and the Maine Department of Education to discuss and come with an agreement on the number of learning spaces (classrooms) and the other necessary spaces (gym, cafeteria, performance space) needed in the school.  There are no design plans being discussed at this point, just number of spaces and sizes of the various spaces.  This will lead to the design work, which should be developed in the fall.  In addition, we do have several subcommittees meeting to discuss various facets of the building project.  Please check the RSU website (rsu24.org) for the most up-to-date information on the building project or any other RSU information.  
 
A reminder that the June referendum date for the school budget is on Tuesday, June 12.  Voting takes place at your local voting stations.  You can find a variety of documents that pertain to the budget on our website.  
 
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at 422-2017 or meastman@rsu24.org.  We very much appreciate your continued support of our schools.
