Re: Interim Director of Special Ed.

Date: 5-23-17

As many of you know, today was Dr. Logue's last day as Director of Special Services for U76. Dr. Logue is moving down to Southern Maine to take on a new role and we wish him well and thank him for his service to Union 76!

When it appeared that Dr. Logue would be leaving I started looking for an Interim Director of Special Ed. to take his place for two reasons. First, it is most important that we have a qualified Director during our transition so as to support our students’ needs. Secondly, I needed to make sure that what happened to us when we had a similar change four years ago, no Director for 8 months, didn't happen again.

I am happy to announce that Ms. Susan Hodgkins has agreed to take over for the next 6-8 weeks as needed. Susan retired as the Director of Special Services in MSAD 37 in 2015 after 16 successful years as their Director. Susan comes highly recommended and we are very fortunate to have her joining our team. As an Interim, Susan will be working 2 to 3 days a week (starting this coming week), while we start our search for a permanent replacement.

A search process for our new Director will be shared shortly.
