Remote Public Hearing

In previous years, all school systems have been required to hold an annual budget meeting to be followed by a budget validation referendum vote. This year, because of the pandemic, Governor Mills issued Executive Order #56 on June 3, 2020, providing for school districts to hold a remote public hearing and school budget referendum in lieu of a budget meeting and budget validation referendum. The remote public hearing will be held as a Zoom meeting on June 30, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. People can join the Zoom meeting by computer or by telephone.
