SAD 53 names interim superintendent

By Alex Barber, BDN Staff

PITTSFIELD, Maine — After two rounds of applications, SAD 53 was unable to find a suitable candidate for superintendent.

The current superintendent, Michael Gallagher, is retiring. His last day is June 30.

The SAD 53 board of directors voted during its meeting Tuesday night to hire an interim superintendent. Jan Laux of Pittsfield, who is on the board of directors, will serve as interim superintendent for a period no longer than 15 months until a permanent replacement can be found.

“Mr. Laux will begin meeting with administrators this week to transition into the role of interim superintendent,” Paul Williams, chairman of the board of directors, said in a statement.

SAD 53 serves Burnham, Detroit and Pittsfield.
