Budget Update #3

Budget Update #3 – RSU #38 Budget Workshop, February 1, 2017

To view the video as well as all supporting materials, please go to www.maranacook.org/budget 

“Promoting student success in all areas as we strive for academic excellence while maintaining fiscal responsibility”

Work continues on the FY18 RSU #38 school budget. Included in this budget is an anticipated 10% increase in health insurance benefits, although the district has not been notified of an official increase rate. Hopefully the increase will be smaller and we will be able to reduce the budget in this area. The 10% increase adds an additional $338,000 in health care benefits over the FY17 budget.Also included in the FY18 budget is an 18% increase in the RSU #38 Maine PERS (retirement) match. The state has increased the local school district rate from 3.36% to 3.98%. This increases the FY18 budget by $60,000 over the FY17 budget.Budget presentations by administrators continued during this meeting with information in the areas of Technology, Special Education, English Language Learners (ELL), and Gifted and Talented (GT). (Read complete Budget Update #3)

Do you have any spare backpacks hanging in a closet somewhere? Are you replacing your child’s backpack for this coming school year, and looking to get rid of the old backpack?

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 7.26.06 PMWe need backpacks!

Please consider donating used backpacks to the Maranacook Food Pantry at the high school.

We send home food to middle and high school students in need and the easiest, most secure way to transport food items is in a backpack. If you can donate any, please drop them off at the high school office, or leave them at the school health center.

We appreciate any help you can give us!
