Kate Harrington Segal
SAU 35 Superintendent

Thank you for the extraordinary opportunity to listen, learn, lead, and serve SAU 35, students, faculty, community, and families. My vision and mission,  continue to influence decisions I make as a teacher, guidance counselor, coach, principal, and now superintendent, collaboratively creating a detailed map and unwavering compass sustaining direction toward excellence in education of which all SAU 35 stakeholders can be proud.

Please be confident that it is my priority as superintendent, to make decisions based on what is best for students, based on listening to and learning from multiple community perspectives, including building and SAU administration, faculty and staff; community; students and parents; and all school boards, including the executive board, while using data to inform, guide and assess our work together. 
My vision is for all students to have educational resources, effective instruction and support, in a loving, caring environment to learn and to thrive.

My mission is a compass and a map, to collaboratively create effective, caring school to home partnerships where students learn the best of what they are capable of becoming and have the skills, knowledge, values, and perseverance to pursue it.     August 2022
