BUXTON — School Administrative District 6 could have a new superintendent next month.

A search committee has selected Frank Sherburne, superintendent of Waterboro-based Regional School Unit 57, to replace Suzanne Lukas, who resigned in May to become superintendent of Regional School Unit 24, based in Ellsworth.

Mark Eastman, who recently retired as superintendent in Oxford Hills, has been filling in as interim superintendent of SAD 6, also known as Bonny Eagle, which serves Buxton, Hollis, Limington, Standish and Frye Island.

Eastman said the SAD 6 school board is scheduled to vote Sept. 6 on whether to hire Sherburne.

Sherburne has been superintendent since 2008 in RSU 57, which includes Massabesic High School. Previously, he was the district’s director of special education, according to a resume posted on the RSU 57 website.

Sherburne has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Fitchburg State College in Massachusetts. He has a master’s degree in education of the deaf and hard of hearing from Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., and a master’s in educational leadership from the University of Southern Maine.
