FIVE TOWN CSD/CAMDEN ROCKPORT SCHOOLS 
2020-2021 PUBLIC INPUT BUDGET MEETINGS

On Monday, March 23, the Five Town CSD and Camden Rockport school boards will hold its scheduled budget meetings to present the 2020-2021 school budgets and to give the public an opportunity to ask questions and provide input before the School Board approves the budgets in April.

The Five Town CSD comprises Camden Hills Regional High School sending towns, including Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville and Rockport. Camden Rockport Schools comprises Camden and Rockport K-8 schools.

Given these unprecedented times, we will conduct this meeting remotely. We have produced a video presentation that would be the presentation you would hear at a live meeting. We are asking the public to watch the video presentation first on our YouTube Channel then join a Zoom online meeting for a question and answer period with the Finance Chair, the Superintendent, and the Business Manager. You can find the links to the YouTube video presentations, Zoom meeting invitation link, and a Zoom tutorial on how to join the meeting listed below.

The Camden Rockport Schools Zoom meeting will take place from 6 to 6:30 p.m. and the Five Town CSD meeting will take place from 6:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The proposed Camden Rockport Schools budget is currently $17 million, which is a .22% percent increase to taxpayers over this year’s budget.

The proposed Five Town CSD budget is at $13.4 million, which is a 3.46% percent increase to taxpayers over this year’s budget.
