School Union 69 hires new superintendent

May 11, 2020
Kathryn Clark is the new superintendent for School Union 69.

Kathryn Clark has been hired as the new superintendent for School Union 69.

With over 30 years experience as a teacher, principal and district administrator in Massachusetts public schools, Clark holds a bachelor’s degree in Special Education from State University College at Fredonia, in New York; a master’s in Elementary Education from Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Mass.; and a certificate of advanced graduate studies in Education Leadership Management from Northeastern University in Boston, Mass.

Clark has extensive experience at both the secondary and elementary level. A special education teacher in grades two through 12 for 17 years, she was also a school-based special education administrator at the secondary level for 10 years, an elementary principal for three years and, for the last three years, director of Pupil Services. Beyond her public school experience, Clark also served as the director of operations of a nationwide educational company, and as the co-director of a children's theater program at Tufts University.

“I come to School Union 69 as a learner and an educator," said Clark, "I am honored to be appointed as superintendent, and eager to learn as much as I can about the communities of Hope, Appleton and Lincolnville. I have already discovered that we share deeply-held beliefs about the importance of creativity, social-emotional learning and high-quality instruction, and I relish the opportunity to steward those values and lead this talented group of administrators, teachers and staff.”
