SAD 30 and Union 110 Superintendent Michael Lambert will become the third top educator in northern Penobscot County to resign his post when the fiscal year ends on June 30, he said Wednesday.
Lambert gave no reasons for his resignation or indication of his future plans.
“I haven’t discussed those with the board,” he said Wednesday. “I really need to talk to the board before I say any of that.”
The next SAD 30 board of directors meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26, at Mount Jefferson Junior High School in Lee, he said.
SAD 30 serves 210 students from Lee, Springfield, Webster and Winn, according to the school system Web site.
RSU 67 Superintendent Michael Marcinkus and Sara Alberts, superintendent of Union 113 and Millinocket schools, plan to leave their positions at the end of the school year. RSU 67 serves Chester, Lincoln and Mattawamkeag; Union 113 consists of East Millinocket, Medway and Woodville.
Statewide, superintendents are resigning their positions in anticipation of municipalities and school districts complying with the state’s school consolidation law.
Under the law creating the regional school units, each new district must consist of at least 2,500 students and one publicly funded high school. But districts of at least 1,200 students will be permitted when demographics or geography make it unreasonable for those systems to combine.
RSU 67 was the only school district in the Katahdin and Lincoln Lakes regions to successfully consolidate, though the effort required little more than a name change.
Michael Lambert replaced Fred Woodman in August 2007. His appointment was reaffirmed by a 22-0 vote from the SAD 30 board of directors.
Lambert is paid about $68,000. His contract expires on June 30.
