Franklin taps retired administrator to lead schools
William Compton, who was most recently superintendent in Barnstead, met with school officials Thursday in preparation for his term as interim superintendent for the SAU 18 school district, according to School Board Chair Kathleen Russo.
Compton, who lives in Exeter, is a 36-year veteran administrator and a former administrator and superintendent in several Massachusetts schools.
He holds a doctorate in education from Nova Southeastern University, a master’s degree in education from Worcester State College, and a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
“He’s a strong leader,” she said. “He will make sure that we keep moving forward with all the good things we’re doing here.”
Barnstead School Board Chair Diane Beijer said Franklin officials made a good choice.
