RSU#5 (Freeport, Pownal & Durham) Schools and Community Programs


Public schools in Freeport are administered by Regional School Unit (RSU) #5, which is an independent regional government, separate from the Town government. In addition to Freeport, the neighboring towns of Durham and Pownal are also members of RSU#5. 

An elected Board of Directors is responsible for the general oversight of the school unit. RSU#5 bills the Town annually for Freeport's local share of the costs to operate the school unit, and these costs are reflected in the local property tax rate which is set by the Town on an annual basis.    



RSU5 Community Programs offers youth sports, camps, leagues and enrichment activities, licensed and education-focused preschool, before and after school child care program, PORT Teen Center, recreational and lifelong learning opportunities including Adult Basic Education (ABE), GED preparation and testing, ESOL classes, and a variety of enrichment and vocational programs. Check us out!
