We now have a Facebook page. It joins the district website, school websites, school newsletters, and superintendent’s letters to help us communicate to our constituencies. . This will be used by all four buildings and Central Office. We hope to give quick notifications of events, meetings, and links to existing websites when appropriate.
This is not an interactive Facebook page. You cannot post to it, nor comment on a post. It’s not a spot to ask a question as there is no one monitoring to answer it. It is one more way to get information about school activities. You can however “ like” the page so the good news about our school system can be shared. Our newsletters and websites will continue to provide more in depth information for you.
Each school website will have a link to the BSD Facebook Page on the left hand column.
In Facebook search for “Brunswick School Department” or click link below.

From the Department of Education:
Chronic absenteeism – defined as missing 10 percent of the school year (18 days here in Maine) – increases achievement gaps and decreases student outcomes. Absences add up quickly. In fact, students who are chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade are much less likely to read proficiently by the end of third grade and are more likely to have poor attendance in later grades.
