School Budget Vote is Tomorrow, July 14, 2020

Please take the time to vote tomorrow on the school budget. The school budget vote will be on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 from 8:00am - 8:pm at the following locations: 

            Canton Town Office

           Carthage Town Office

           Dixfield - American Legion

           Peru Town Office

Quick facts: The School Budget is up 2.02%. RSU 56 received additional funding from the state. Three of our towns have a decrease in assessment. Carthage will continue to have an increase due to the wind power project that has increased valuation. (See chart below for impact to the four towns.)

For more budget information check out the budget section of our website:

Please contact Pam Doyen, Superintendent, if you have questions, comments or concerns. She can be reached at (207) 562-4300 ext. 5 or by email at 

Again, please vote. Your vote matters. You can vote absentee ballot if you so desire. You simply go to your town office and ask for an absentee ballot, fill it out and return it to the town office.
