A Message from Superintendent Linda Savastano

It is truly an honor to serve as the Superintendent of South Kingstown School District.  South Kingstown School District has a long custom of excellence in all educational endeavors, and I am committed to keeping that tradition alive and well while working diligently to educate ALL of our children in the knowledge and skills necessary to ensure readiness and success in college and career.

At the core of all I do and deep within my heart is a belief in ALL students.  I have great pride in my experience leading a Professional Learning Community to facilitate collaborative leadership, guiding a 21st-century digital transformation in alignment with the deeper learning competencies while developing a culture of equity, openness, and sharing of ideas.

Working together, I know that South Kingstown School District will provide the foundation for an exceptional educational experience.  We are committed to working in partnership with families and the entire educational community to educate ALL of our children.  If I can ever be of any help to you or your child at any time, please, do not hesitate to reach out.

Few school districts can offer what South Kingstown School District can.  The excellence and variety of programs offered by our schools, along with the quality of life in South Kingstown, make our community of South Kingstown a wonderful place to learn, work, and live.
