Welcome to SAD #4!
Please scroll down for directions to the schools.

Open Letter to the SAD #4 residents:

I would like to thank the Budget Committee and the entire Board of Directors for their work on the school budget.  Also, thank you to the public that came out to our meetings to learn the truth about the budget.  It has been frustrating and disappointing at times, but I believe that we have brought the best budget forward to be able to run our schools this year.  Is it perfect?  No.  Is everyone happy with it?  No.  But we must come together…six communities working together.  It is important to pass the budget and help get people out there to vote in favor of the budget.

Superintendent Kirkpatrick and I, along with the rest of the school board, hear what people are saying about shrinking enrollment and high costs.  My promise to you is that we will continue to look at ways to save money next year (sharing services, moving offices and programs).  We will do our best to make changes that will not hurt the education that our children need!

I had the opportunity to hear Former Senator George Mitchell speak recently.  The speech he gave to the Mitchell scholar recipients and their parents hit close to home for me.  He told these young adults that they are all from public schools in Maine and that they should never let anyone tell them that their public education is not as good as anyone else’s. These young people are as smart as anyone else in the world!  His final comment was that there should not be a price on education, because it only makes our communities better!

I believe that SAD #4 is a great school district!  I have had two children graduate from this school system and I graduated from here.  Our children are as well educated as any other kids from bigger schools.  They may not get all the cool courses and the extras, but they do get a good education that doesn’t limit their future.  They are watching us as we set an example of believing in the importance of education.  Let’s show them how working together is more powerful then working against each other.

It is so close now to the start of school.  It would be good to have a budget in place before the children are back in their classrooms!

For anyone reading this, please let’s start working together and pass a school budget for the education of the children.
