The results of the March 2017 election/voting day are in and SAU 83 continues to be grateful for the dedication of the Fremont voters who showed up in a major snowstorm to cast their votes.
In short, the proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 passed. The Fremont Education Association's collective bargaining agreement with the Fremont School Board passed and will be in effect for the next two-years. The Ellis School Maintenance Trust Fund may be replenished up to $20,000 from the unexpended fund balance at the close of this school year. The Tuition Trust Fund, which stands at a little of $200,000 will not receive additional funding at this time. Lastly, Angela O'Connell will continue her dedicated service to the citizens of Fremont for another three years on the Fremont School Board, Trish Coulombe will continue as District Secretary, and Betty Stanley will continue again as School District Treasurer.
However, the school district is again without a School District Moderator. If you are interested in that position, please send a letter of interest to the SAU 83 office at 432 Main Street, Fremont, NH 03045.
Ellis School Adequacy Site Visit
SAU 83 has received the results of the Ellis School adequacy site visit made by the NHDOE in October 2016. It is attached below including a letter from our outgoing Commissioner, Dr. Virginia Barry.
Here are a few particular notes of thanks for the quality results of the visitation...one to Principal Andrew Haas and Assistant Brigid Connelly who had to put together a visitation schedule so quickly after starting in their new positions in July. Also, to Ms. Lyn Healy for being the catalyst for the work on "I can" statements over the past several years... To all of the Ellis staff who have put in time developing these statements and doing other work moving us ever closer to a more cohesive and sequential educational experience for our kids, and to the Fremont School Board for supporting this and the many other efforts to raise the quality of education at Ellis School.
