Budget 2020-2021

New Updates: Due to COVID-19 and the extended school closure, the MSAD #51 school budget process will be delayed, based on the uncertainty of state timelines and mandates and the change in date of the June elections to July 14.   The Public Hearing is scheduled for June 1 and the MSAD #51 Board of Directors will adopt the budget on June 8. We still do not have a date for the District Budget Meeting. The budget validation referendum is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, July 14, along with local and state elections.
