Below is a link to the updated budget materials for the 2015-16 school year.  On Wednesday June 3rd, the RSU 18 Board of Directors took action to reduce this budget by $292,700.  The revised budget now stands at $34,382,408 and is a 1.9% increase over the current year school budget.  There are several more key steps in this budget approval process.  June 8th at 6PM (Messalonskee Middle School) there will be a public hearing on this proposed budget, on June 18th there will be a District Budget Meeting to allow the public to approve this budget (Messalonskee High School 6PM), and finally on June 30th, Residents of China, Belgrade, Oakland, Rome, and Sidney will vote (Yes/No) on the budget adopted on June 18th.  Please get out there and support the many good things happening in RSU 18!
