Dear RSU 21 Families,

It is a great honor and privilege for me to serve as Superintendent of Maine Regional School Unit 21. Working together as a community, we will enhance our school system by focusing on our students’ growth through innovative practices and innovative, educational opportunities.

Regional School Unit 21 is the heart of the community. The foundation of our success is built upon three essentials:

  • Ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for all students to develop into inquisitive and productive citizens.

  • Integrating high-quality programs supported by innovative instructional strategies.

  • Implementing cost effective strategies to ensure fiscal responsibility.

As Superintendent, I will continue to utilize a strategic, systematic approach in needs assessment and resource allocation to  drive  student success.   This process is essential to serving the needs of the students, staff, and community of Maine Regional School Unit 21.

It is my belief that all students will be successful, given a positive learning atmosphere that welcomes inquiry, problem-solving, critical-thinking and develops student intrinsic  motivation, confidence and achievement.  Having high and clear expectations for our students are essential while responding to each student as an individual.  

As your superintendent, I will continue building strong parent and community partnerships, which are essential in fostering student success.  The collective work and effort of community stakeholders, district administrators, staff, and students will continuously move the district forward.


Much love,


Dr. Terri Cooper, Ed. D.
