Publice Forum Concerning The 2009-2010 School Budget

The MSAD 11 School Board will be holding a public forum on Tuesday, January 27th at 7:00 PM, in the cafeteria of the Gardiner Regional Middle School. This meeting is designed to provide community members with proposed ideas for cost containment in the 2009-2010 District Budget. At this time, community members will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.

There are a number of ideas that have been proposed.

These include:

•Closing of T.C. Hamlin School and placing portables at Pittston Consolidated School to accommodate the combining of the two schools

•A number of staffing cuts at the high school level

•Closing the superintendent's building and selling the building

•Eliminating librarian positions

•Eliminating or reducing guidance positions

•Eliminating district educational technician positions

If you have suggestions or concerns, please come and share these with the board at the Public Forum.
