You might want to explain what you mean by binder, exactly. That term can have a number of specific but different meanings.
It is possible for you to sign the binder after you've extracted the unneeded pages? A signature applies to a document (individual PDF), so it's not clear to me what you mean by "...get the signature separate from the binder".
What I mean by "binder" is a collection of disparate files collected together, plans, checklists, word and excel files, saved in PDF format then collected into one PDF document. I send this entire document to my director who then goes through it, if approved they sign it.
The problem is the client does not/should not see some of our internal documents that I have to attach to the PDF I send my director. When I try to extract the pages of the signed document to send it to the client the signature is removed. I was wondering if there was a way to delete pages from the previously signed document and still keep the same signature.
I realize I can send more than one PDF to my director ( that idea was nixed), I could also resend a smaller PDF(also denied).
My limitation is that my director only wants to have to look through and approve one document and I am new to Adobe Acrobat

No. Changing the file in any way will invalidate the signature, and extracting pages from it will result in a non-signed copy.
I suggest you use a PDF Portfolio. That is essentially a single PDF document that contains multiple PDF files as attachments to it. Each file can be opened and edited separately, while the portfolio itself remains the same.
So the director can open the (sub-)document that needs to be signed and sign it, and you can then extract that one document and send it on as a standalone file, without sending the other files in the portfolio.
This is probably the only way what you described can be done.
Be aware that portfolios only work with Adobe products, recent versions, and only on computers (i.e. not on iPad, Android etc. even if Adobe software used).
Thank you. That tells me what I needed to know.
