Required FOA training

School board members, as elected officials, must complete a course of training on the Freedom of Access Law. One way to do it is by going to the state FOA website and conducting a thorough review of the material on the “Frequently Asked Questions” page. The website is at www.maine.gov/foaa/faq/. Once you have completed your training, you should fill out a “Certificate of Completion"  and send it to the superintendent’s office for filing. Click below for a copy of the certificate.
