Dear Friends of RSU No. 5:

Mike Lafortune and I, Bill Michaud, will serve as Co-Superintendents of Schools for the district until June 30, 2015.  We are both excited to be here and look forward to assisting the RSU through this period of transition. 

Durham, Freeport and Pownal owe a debt of gratitude to the district's first Superintendent, Shannon L. Welsh, who retired at the end of June.  Dr. Welsh worked tirelessly on behalf of RSU5 students and teachers and set extremely high standards for professionalism and educational excellence.  We applaud her accomplishments and wish her a long, healthy, and happy retirement. 

Mike and I have been fortunate to work in many capacities in Maine schools over the past 30 years.  We look forward to our time here, and will be guided by the simple question, "Is it good for kids?" 

Best wishes,

Bill Michaud

Mike Lafortune
