Superintendent's Welcome!

Greetings from RSU #24,
Let's hope the last snowstorm is the final one!  I'm ready for the ground to dry out, flowers to start blooming, and the green grass to start showing up!  With the most recent snow day, we have exceeded the allotted days in the calendar for cancellations.  At this point, the last day for our students is June 13th. 
The Budget and Finance Committee has approved our proposed budget to move forward to the full Board.  The full Board will vote on the budget at its May 7th meeting at Sumner.  Once the budget is approved by the Board, we will begin the preparations for the district budget meeting and the referendum process.  The district budget meeting will take place on May 29th and the referendum on June 11th.  More information regarding those two events will be sent out at a later time.  The materials discussed at the Budget Workshops are posted on the RSU Business and Finance Webpage, found under the Departments tab of the website.
Once students return from April vacation, the last six weeks of the school year will fly by.  Please look to the individual schools for information about the end of year activities and field trips.  Class Night and Graduation for the class of 2024 will be on June 4th and 6th respectively.  Our Adult Education end of year celebrations will take place on June 5th.
If you have a child who will be entering Kindergarten next school year, please contact the school to sign up for screening.  This important process puts our youngest learners in the best possible position to start school.  Please call your local school with any questions.
As always, I appreciate the continued support of our schools and the district.  If you have any questions or comments about any aspect of the school district, please don't hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected]
