Strategic Plan Survey and Forums

      RSU 5 is developing a new strategic plan to guide education in the district for years to come, and the RSU wants the people of Durham, Freeport and Pownal to weigh in.
      A committee is working to draft a new mission statement, vision and strategic plan for the RSU and have developed a short, eight-question survey to learn more about how their friends and neighbors of all ages and backgrounds feel about our local schools, as well as how they want education to look in the district in the future.
