Welcome to the Groton Public School System


Susan L. Austin, Superintendent of Schools



A teacher at heart and an accomplished, visionary educational leader for the past forty years, Susan Austin became Groton Public Schools (GPS) Superintendent on January 1, 2021. Her role as Assistant Superintendent of GPS since 2014, along with my many years of high quality experience as an educator and educational leader, have prepared her to carry forth the vision, mission, and goals of the Board of Education.

As a submariner's daughter, she also brings a unique perspective to the military community. Her own Father was stationed in Groton in the late 70’s as CO of Subschool and a squadron commander. “Being in Groton is a little like coming home and I understand the unique challenges and successes our military children and their families face.”
