|The new RSU will
assume other contractual obligations of the various school administrative
units. These may include such things
as copying contracts, bus contracts or contracts for snow removal.
balances, costs and liabilities will remain with the originating SAU and they
continue to be the responsibility of the local communities. Unallocated balances or reserve funds may
be used to reduce financial obligations to the new RSU. Scholarships that have been established
within a community or school will remain with that community or school. The RSU board will administer the
scholarship but it may not change the intent of the original
scholarship. Likewise, trust funds
established for a school will remain with that school but the funds will be
administered by the RSU board for that purpose.
|SU 96 towns are
the only towns in the proposed RSU that have funds accrued to cover payroll
and benefits for its personnel during the summer. These funds will be applied to reduce the
financial obligation of those member communities in 2009-2010. These are the one-time savings that were
listed in the flyer that was mailed to all residents.
