TO:                Superintendents of Schools

FROM:            Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner

DATE:             January 26, 2007

RE:                 Updated Schedule of Public Information Sessions on the Local Schools, Regional Support Initiative
Due to strong interest in the Bangor public forum on the Local Schools, Regional Support Initiative we have moved the location to Peakes Auditorium at Bangor High School.  This larger venue will accommodate more people.  I am hoping this will afford you, your local school boards, and community members an opportunity to ask questions regarding the proposed restructuring plan.

  • Tuesday, January 30, 7:00-9:00 p.m., Peakes Auditorium, Bangor High School (Governor & Commissioner will participate)

I would also like to take this opportunity to announce an additional forum.

  • Wednesday, February 7, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Presque Isle Middle School, Presque Isle (Governor & Commissioner will participate)


Many of your local legislators and school boards are holding forums around the State and have asked Department of Education staff to participate.  Rather than send informational letters every few days, we will post all new information regarding forums in which Department staff are participating on the Department’s website, (click on the Local Schools, Regional Support logo).  Please keep checking the site for updates. 

We will also post the details regarding the interactive broadcast next week that will include more detailed information and allow viewers to have questions answered ahead of the February 5th legislative hearing. 

For additional information about the Local Schools, Regional Support Initiative, contact David Connerty-Marin, Director of Communications, at 624-6620 or .

As a reminder, the meeting originally planned for February 7, 2007 has been cancelled and replaced by public information sessions.
