The following was forwarded from the RSU 50 Central Office noting more changes to the Board meeting and subsequent vote to close Katahdin.
Please attend very closely to this message.
Due to the potential for the weather to be an issue at the end of our meeting tomorrow evening, and the board needing to get regular business accomplished, we will hold our executive session, audit report, bid opening, and other general items starting at our regularly scheduled time of 5:30. Secondly, the board chair and I along with a majority of the board, recommend that an adjustment to the agenda should be made to move the discussion and potential vote on consolidation options to another date and time. I suggest the date and time to be Thursday, January 21, at 6:00 at the Katahdin Elementary School.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience this will cause anyone as we work to get all of our business done. We would hope to move the boy’s basketball game to 4:00 on the 21st to accommodate parents wanting to attend both events.

Please note public comment under #4…
Forwarded from the Supt’s office today. Please note the change in date and especially location. Though Katahdin’s communities now have few illusions about any benefit to their children or taxpayers… Still… The gavel dropping anywhere but Katahdin is tone deaf, to put it mildly…..
“As many of you may know the scheduling/cancellations of the last few board meetings has been quite a challenge.
Due to basketball games on both sides of the district, accountants, and other entities involved with our scheduling, we are going to move the board meeting to January 12th.
The meeting will be in the gym at SACS. Our intent is provide an agenda later today. I regret any hardship this places on anyone. The primary intent for the date change is to allow parents from our communities to attend the board meeting.
We will also be considering adjustments to the agenda to allow for the most expedient attention to matters on the agenda that have been delayed due to the previous cancellations”
