Exeter School District News

EXETER - In recognition of the 53 years of combined service that Joan and Dick Eustis dedicated to teaching, coaching, and administrative capacities, SAU 16 annually recognizes a district employee who has served students with the distinction that exemplifies an SAU 16 education. Their notable and outstanding careers set a positive tone throughout the Exeter area. Together they serve as role models for educators today.

For 2013, Mrs. Carla Ranks was selected to receive this prestigious award. Her name will be added to the plaque that is located in the SAU 16 Conference Room.

Mrs. Ranks was chosen because of her significant dedication to the Early Childhood Education program at the Seacoast School of Technology (SST). She has been a pre-school teacher in this program since it started in September 1980. For 33 years she has devoted herself to sharing her love and knowledge of children with her students.

Graduate School Course - Plymouth State University will continue to offer graduate level courses at the Seacoast Professional Development Center (SPDC) in Exeter this fall: Organizational Leadership in Schools will be available for those who are pursuing a Masters degree with a concentration in school administration; Collaborative Leadership will be offered for those who are pursuing a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS). Registration may be completed directly at www.plymouth.edu.

Contract Negotiations - During the upcoming school year, six collective bargaining groups within SAU 16 will be involved in contract negotiations with their respective school boards. When a settlement is reached between the school board and the association, the results are brought forward to the voters in the community. In March 2014, those registered voters who cast ballots will make the final determination about the proposed contract. In March 2013, slightly less than 20% of registered voters participated in this process.

Negotiations with the teacher associations in the following districts will take place this year: Brentwood, East Kingston, Exeter, Exeter Region Cooperative, and Newfields. Negotiations with the Exeter Area Administrators Association in the Exeter Region Cooperative District will also be in process. The goal is to reach an agreement between the respective association and school board by mid-January 2014.

Seacoast Professional Development Center (SPDC) - The SPDC will continue to offer a wide variety of courses and workshops for teachers and community members this year. This includes opportunities to learn more about technology initiatives and teaching strategies that will strengthen programs for students. Information is updated regularly at the SAU 16 website (www.sau16.org).
