For your calendars, a timeline of when the RSU #50 Budget will be formed. Thank you to our readers who have shared your thoughts with me – it seems you are of a mind regarding bureaucratic bloat relative to other districts of similar size… ….but the Board is clearly of a different one. To create a budget that reflects YOUR priorities and values, please, have your say….
Here is the first draft of the budget, as distributed at the meeting Monday night:
A look at the Faculty and Staff Directories of Schools similar in size to each school in RSU #50 on their own websites gives us a picture of the size of their bureaucracies. The Maine Department of Education publishes ED279s, as well, to see how we compare to their goals, and other districts: http://www.maine.gov/doe/eps/
The Maine Heritage Policy Center keeps a list of top Superintendents’ salaries: http://mainepolicy.org/maines-school-superintendents-salaries/
We hope this helps.
