Community Meeting Notice: "RSU 20- Focus on the Future"

posted Dec 9, 2014, 4:56 AM by brrichards@rsu20.org

"RSU 20- Focus on the Future" will take place on Monday, December 15, starting at 5:30PM with an open house/tour of our middle and high school. At 6PM, we will meet in the SDM/HS cafetorium to highlight two key points: the amazing accomplishments of our community during hardships facing our schools in the past, and to provide answers to the community about where we stand right now as the new (and much smaller) RSU 20 beginning in July.

Please consider coming to support the fundraising efforts of the Robotics Teams Spaghetti Supper before "Focus on the Future", from 4-6PM. Both the Robotics team Spaghetti supper and the RSU 20- Focus on the Future community meeting will take place in the Middle/High School cafetorium.

If you are concerned about where we stand now as an RSU, or if you'd like to participate in shaping the future of our students, provide input, as well as find out what steps the students/staff have taken toward refining a vision for our schools- this is the meeting for you!

Keep in mind: The Vision plays an important role in helping the school board make important decisions about our new budget. It provides a direction for us to pursue in July as a school, and perhaps, as a community as well.

Students are encouraged to attend. This community meeting is a springboard to a series of events that will soon take place to shape the vision, as well as other important aspects of our community schools.

Keynote speaker and RSU20 school board Chairman, Tony Bagley will provide a presentation on where we stand, now that Belfast and surrounding towns have succeeded at their withdrawal efforts. As parents, taxpayers, community members and staff, this should be something of great interest to everyone in Stockton Springs and Searsport, or to people who send their children to our schools.

Your students will be bringing home newsletters in the near future, starting next week, which will have more information about the RSU 20- Focus on the Future agenda, etc. Please encourage your friends and family to attend. This is a very important collaborative effort being put together to keep you well informed, and designed to welcome your valuable ideas and input.
