Superintendent named for SAU 19
After about eight months of searching for a new superintendent, the SAU 19 School Board unanimously voted for Balke for the position.
“Brian brings a strong vision, knowledge of the communities, a commitment to excellence and humility to the role. ‘What is best for kids’ is the question that he often asks and indeed this question serves as a compass in his decision-making,” said Keith Allard, SAU 19 School Board chairman. “These are the leadership qualities that the communities of Goffstown and New Boston shared a desire for in public forums earlier this year.”
In addition to being a school administrator, Balke is pursuing his doctorate in education at Rivier University with an anticipated completion date of 2017. Balke also teaches students in the graduate programs at Southern New Hampshire University and Rivier University.
Balke brings a strong educational background and experience to the position, said Allard. Balke has worked in public education for the past 20 years, and prior to working with the SAU 19, he was director of pupil services for the Londonderry School District.
“Brian brings a passion and dedication to the children in our schools through clear communication, dynamic leadership and a commitment to transparency. We are very pleased to have Brian continue to serve our school districts as the superintendent,” said Wendy Lambert, chairman of the New Boston School Board.
“Brian has exhibited commitment, leadership, passion and vision for the Goffstown School District. We are excited to have Brian as our superintendent,” McCarthy said.
