An Important Letter to the Brunswick Community from the Superintendent. To view letter, click HERE.

We would like to hear from YOU, the Brunswick community….

A Superintendent’s advisory committee has been researching innovative K-12 academic programs in Maine and across the country, and we would like to know what you think about some of the ideas we have found. Are there programs that would work well in Brunswick? Are there existing programs in Brunswick that should be expanded? This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and we would really appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance for your participation!
