Federal funding is allotted to school districts throughout Maine through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Application.


Our district completes the application process, requesting funding for the following:

Title I - Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged

Title II - Preparing, Training, and Recruiting High Quality Teachers and Principals

Title IV - Provides funding to improve students’ academic achievement by increasing school district capacity

Title V - Rural Education Initiative


You are invited to attend the July 13, 2021 RSU 20 School Board Meeting. You will be provided information about the tentative projects identified in the RSU 20 ESEA application and have the opportunity to share your ideas and feedback on the use of the federal funds provided to our district.


If you are unable to attend and would like to share feedback, feel free to contact me through email at bholweger@rsu20.org or call 207-548-2317.

Message from Superintendent Chris Downing

On May 14, 2021, Maine Department of Education (DOE) updated the PK-12 and Adult Education Public Health Guidance with some significant changes that will impact Searsport Elementary School and Searsport District Middle High School. Effective immediately:
  • Mask requirements and social distancing requirements are no longer in place for outdoor classes. Per Maine DOE’s Coordinated School Health department, outdoor classes means “anything outdoors.” This means students outside for classes, breaks, and recess no longer need to maintain social distancing or wear masks. Students and staff may continue to wear masks and maintain distance if they choose to. 

  • Adult distancing requirements have been removed. This means adult to adult and adult to student distancing requirements have been removed. 

  • Students age five and above are required to wear a mask/face covering that covers their nose and mouth when indoors. Updated on (4/28/21)

  • Eating and drinking still requires 6' distancing for all.

  • Distancing related to music went from 14 feet to 6 feet.

Thank you for your continued support of our students and our schools. 


Sincerely,


Chris Downing
Superintendent of Schools
