Caribou Community School, RSU #39
Regional School Unit #39 in Caribou, Maine, was chosen to receive state funding to replace the energy-inefficient 1950 Teague Park Elementary School, Hilltop School, and Caribou Middle School. The consolidation of 3 aging facilities into one new high-performance school will create efficiencies made necessary by population decline in the area. The new pre-K–8 school sits on a 17.4-acre parcel in the center of Caribou, directly across from the Caribou Wellness and Recreation Center. Close collaboration among the City of Caribou, the National Park Service, the Maine Attorney General’s Office, and the Maine Department of Education makes this central site possible. A new public park will be provided as part of the project.
The website for Eastern Aroostook RSU #39 has an extensive section on the project.
