Superintendent Search

Earlier this year, Dr. Robert M. Sullivan announced his retirement as Superintendent of Schools for SAU #21. The following is Dr. Sullivan’s retirement announcement: Retirement Letter

The SAU #21 Joint School Board is now focused on conducting a formal search for a new Superintendent for the 2018-19 school year. The Joint Board has contracted the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) to conduct the search. The following is the Superintendent search announcement letter and advertisement: Search Letter and Advertisement

The following is an estimated timeline for the Superintendent search process: Timeline

An important component of the search process is conducting Focus Groups. The Focus Group serves a number of purposes in the search process. First, it seeks to establish those areas where members of the community and the school system feel should be priorities for the new Superintendent. Second, it affords an opportunity for the various constituent groups to have some worthwhile input into the search process. Finally, it should help in establishing a profile of those characteristics and skills which will best match the specific needs of the school system at the present time.

NESDEC hosted 5 focus groups to gather input from all stakeholder groups:
