Dear parents, guardians, community members of RSU 2,
We have two important steps remaining in the creation and acceptance of the budget for the 2018-2019 school year. The first will be Tuesday, May 29 at 6:00 pm in the Richmond High School Gym. At this meeting, we will approve the final warrants to fund the schools. Any voter present can propose changes to the school budget. If the changes are agreed to by the majority of participants, the final budget presented to voters will be adjusted to reflect the new numbers.
The second step is the Budget Validation Referendum. This will take place on Tuesday, June 12th at your local polling place.
While I cannot tell you how to vote, I believe the Board and administrators of RSU 2 have done a great job in crafting a budget that allows us to maintain our levels of instruction while also realizing efficiencies in our operations. As with many schools, we do have declining enrollments over the last 10 years and have adjusted staff accordingly while also ensuring highly effective learning environments.
Please attend the RSU 2 Budget Meeting and Vote:
Tuesday, May 29 at 6:00 pm
Richmond High School Gym
If you have any questions about the budget, please do not hesitate to call or email me directly.
Thank you for your support of our schools.
William P. Zima
Superintendent of Schools, RSU 2
