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

 On behalf of the RSU #38 School Board, administrators, staff, and students, I would like to thank the citizens of RSU #38 for supporting the FY18 School Budget.  Included in the budget vote, was Warrant Article #18 that provided for the return of any additional state monies to the towns in order to reduce local taxes.  With the passing of the state budget in early July, additional funds were allocated to many districts, including RSU #38.  Additional funds were applied to the state funding formula for education (ED279) and we were notified that RSU #38 received an additional $303,488 in state subsidy. Additional funding amounts, as determined by the state and applied to local taxes, are explained in Version 3 Local Dollar Calculation.

Again, thank you for your support throughout the budget process.  This support validates the mission of RSU #38 as “a caring school community dedicated to excellence.”

Sincerely,

Donna H. Wolfrom, Ed.D.

Superintendent of School
