It is with great excitement that the Scarborough Board of Education announces that Mr. Geoffrey Bruno has been hired as the Superintendent for Scarborough Public Schools to begin July 1, 2021. Mr. Bruno has served as the Superintendent in Falmouth for the past 7 years. Prior to his move to Maine in June of 2014, Geoff spent most of his career as an educator in the greater Boston area, serving as a K-12 Executive Director for Curriculum & Instruction and Middle School Principal in Saugus, Assistant Principal in Hopkinton and Georgetown, and Head of School at Community Day Charter Public School in Lawrence, MA.  Prior to taking on district and school leadership roles, Geoff taught middle school science and outdoor education.

The Board has the utmost confidence that Mr. Bruno’s experience and dedication to education will ensure that Scarborough Public Schools continues to be an outstanding place for our students to grow, learn, and thrive. The ability to attract a superintendent of such a high caliber reflects Scarborough’s long-standing commitment to excellence.

SHS Fully Remote Week of 3/8/21

posted Mar 6, 2021, 1:14 PM by Kelly Johnston

Today, Saturday, March 6th, we became aware of 2 more positive cases of COVID-19 at Scarborough High School.  This brings our 2 week case count to 13 positive cases at SHS.  In addition, 155 individuals have been deemed close contacts from these cases, including 20 staff.   Given this sharp increase in positive cases as compared to any other point in the year, there is the need for us to go fully remote at Scarborough High School for this week, and we will return to in person learning on Monday, March 15. In addition, because of the sharp increase in cases among students specifically, all in-person sports and activities will be cancelled for the coming week out of an abundance of caution.  Coaches and Advisors will reach out to students.
