Superintendent's Welcome!

August 15, 2018


Greetings from RSU #24,
It is hard to believe that the start of school is right around the corner.  We are working to fill a few remaining positions and to finish the summer maintenance projects.  The gym renovation work at the Ella Lewis School will continue into September, which will include the new floor installation!
School will begin on September 4 for students in kindergarten through 9th grade.  Sumner Memorial sophomores, juniors, and seniors will begin on September 5.  For parents of Pre-K students, please check with your local school for exact starting dates.  If you have any questions regarding athletics at the schools, please contact the schools directly.  Lastly, you should be able to access our RSU Bus Routes on our webpage ( or in the Ellsworth American.
The new building project continues to move along.  We are still working on our space allocations for the new building, designating how many learning spaces we need and how large the learning spaces should be.  We continue to have subcommittee meetings and Building Committee meetings to inform this work AND we continue to meet with the Maine Department of Education to discuss our needs for the new building.  Please know that we will have planned a public meeting to update the RSU #24 community on the the building project.  This meeting will take place on September 18, 6:00 p.m. at Sumner Memorial High School.  Also, you can find a variety of information on the district website by accessing the "New Building Project" link at the top of the page.  
As always, if you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to call my office at 422-2017 or email me at  Please know that I greatly appreciate the support provided to our schools by our various communities.
