Welcome to Regional School Unit #19
Click here to view a keynote address on proficiency-based education, delivered by former Maine Education Commissioner, Mr. J. Duke Albanese, to the RSU 19 faculty and staff during the opening workshop on August 25, 2014.
"The RSU 19 Board has appointed Dr. Janet Morse as Interim Superintendent, effective August 26th, as it begins a national search for its next district leader. Outgoing Superintendent, Mr. Gregory Potter, has accepted an administrative post in Florida. He will participate in opening activities with the RSU 19 district staff before departing on a few days of transitional leave. On August 18th, Mr. Potter expressed to the Board his sincere thanks and optimism about the direction the district is heading, and he asks that everyone please support Dr. Morse wholeheartedly during this important transitional phase. He stated that, "the growth and change over the last few years has been tremendous in RSU 19, and it is due to the collective efforts of its outstanding leadership team, and its instructional and support staffs. This work would not be possible without a supportive school board and the community at large. I look forward with great excitement to what is to come in RSU 19! Good luck, and I will certainly miss working in this great system. My wife and I had to make a tough choice, which is to be closer to many family members who need us, and friends in Florida. We plan to visit Maine very often, as well. Good luck to all in RSU 19 and thank you for the wonderful opportunity to work with you over the past three years!"
Inspire every student.
Instill a motivation for learning.
Insure contributing citizens.
We envision that each student,
in partnership with the community,
will be an involved citizen,
a lifelong learner in a global society,
possess relevant life skills,
and be able to utilize emerging technologies.
