Our Staff

Because of the number of districts and resultant school boards our School Administrative Office is structured using an innovative co-superintendent model.  Each of superintendent has sole responsible for specific districts.

Patricia Sherman leads the Deerfield and Pembroke Schools Districts as well as both the SAU Full Board and the SAU Executive Board and oversees the day to day operation of the SAU Central Office.

David Ryan leads the Allenstown, Chichester and Epsom School Districts.

SAU employees include central office staff and a number of teachers and “specialists” who work in school buildings, but are billed through the SAU. This occurs in SAU sponsored programs like Pre-School\TLC or in alternative programs like Bridge. It can also occur as a cost saving measure when schools need specialist such as psychologists or Occupational/Physical/Speech Therapist, but do not need them full time.

The SAU Central Office itself in managed and directed using a “Shared Leadership Model” by a team of administrators, often referred to as COLT. The Central Office Leadership Team.
