Strategic Plan Survey

RSU5 Durham, Freeport, Pownal is re-establishing a vision for our schools, our future direction!  We are continually looking to improve our practices in order to best meet students' needs.  Please help us by making your voice heard through sharing your ideas.  We're eager to hear what you have to say.  Please answer as many of the questions as you feel comfortable answering.

Our plan is to collect ideas from as many community members as possible and formulate a vision to guide future work.  Next year we will complete the strategic plan, mapping out steps to achieve the vision.

The survey responses will be shared with the community in the fall of 2018.  Thank you.
