QAC BOE unanimously voted to hire Patricia SAELENS as the County’s new Superintendent.
Patty SAELENS comes with enormous experience, excellence and knowledge.

Dr. SAELENS was the first Superintendent in Maryland to reopen schools in January 2021 with a sole focus of getting kids back to classrooms and direct instructional learning.
Queen Anne’s County Parents and the newly elected BOE stopped political indoctrination of school children during Covid-19 pandemic when the prior Superintendent Dr. Andrea Kane sent alarming letter to parents on June 5,2020 promoting Black Lives Matter organization and anti-police sentiment to elementary, middle and high school children.
