Union 103 is made up of two elementary schools (Beals and Jonesport) and the combined Jonesport-Beals High School. One three-person board governs BES, and another three-person board handles JES. Three Jonesporters join those six to make up a nine-member board that governs J-BHS (Moosabec CSD) as well as the entire district (joint school board) in matters that pertain to all three schools (superintendent, buses, etc.) Last week, those nine people sat as both boards in back-to-back meetings—for over five hours.
