There will be several personnel changes at the Central Office of Maine School Administrative District 40 when school begins in the 2011-2012 term.

Superintendent Francis Boynton announced this month that he will retire at the end of August.

Business Manager Raymond Shute, who started Aug. 9, 2010, recently announced that he will resign effective June 30.

Director of Instruction Susan Jackson announced earlier this year that she will also resign at the end of June.

And the proposed budget for 2011-2012 does not include funding for the director of facilities position. Those responsibilities will be carried out by administrators including the business manager.

Superintendent Boynton said the SAD 40 Board of Directors decided after the May 19 executive session to hire the Maine School Management Association to provide the process to hire the new superintendent.

Boynton said May 24 that the resignations and retirement were for different reasons, and there was no underlying reason for the departures.
