ELLSWORTH — In a special Nov. 14 meeting, the School Board unanimously voted to accept the resignation of Katrina Kane as superintendent and named Amy Boles as interim superintendent. Boles was named acting assistant superintendent earlier this year.

Kane led the city’s schools for nearly a year, first as an interim part-time superintendent beginning in December 2021 after the resignation of then-Superintendent Dan Higgins. She was hired in July after a search for a new superintendent. While interim superintendent, Kane continued her part-time superintendency of Hancock and Lamoine schools.
