Dr. Sara Hale has been named Milford School District Chief Operating Officer

As Milford School District concludes another successful school year, we eagerly embrace our path forward guided by our latest strategic plan. This plan centers around four key priorities: Academic Excellence, Student Support, Recruitment and Retention, and Facilities and Systems.

With this path forward and under the new leadership of Dr. Bridget Amory, there are exciting changes to our organizational chart, including modifications to existing roles and the emergence of new opportunities.

As such, we are pleased to announce Dr. Sara Hale as our Chief Operating Officer. Dr. Hale brings with her a wealth of experience as an accomplished finance professional, complemented by a robust educational background. Her expertise lies in budget development, financial management, school district operations, and an unwavering commitment to the educational success of the Milford School District.

Dr. Hale holds a Doctor of Business Administration, a Master of Business Administration, and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Wilmington University.

Serving as the Chief Financial Officer of the Milford School District since 2014, Dr. Hale has diligently overseen all financial operations within the district, including finance, payroll, and benefits. In addition, she has successfully directed program operations for the Buildings and Grounds and Child Nutrition departments. As the new Chief Operations Officer, Dr. Hale will now add the Technology and Transportation departments, providing complete oversight of the day-to-day operational departments of the district.

Before her tenure as the Chief Financial Officer, Dr. Hale served as the Deputy Director of Budget Development, Planning, and Administration for the State of Delaware’s Office of Management and Budget. In this capacity, she supervised a team of fiscal and policy analysts, reviewed their work products and performance, and played an instrumental role in the development and production of the Governor’s Recommended Budget for the State of Delaware.

In response to this opportunity, Dr. Hale shares, “I am truly honored and humbled to take on the role of Chief Operating Officer, for the past 9 years I have remained deeply committed to the success and well-being of our students. I look forward to continuing to work closely with the dedicated staff, families, and community members to further enhance the Milford School District’s mission and vision and support the leadership of Dr. Amory.”

As we look ahead, we are confident that Dr. Hale’s leadership and expertise will contribute to the continued growth as we “Chart the Course to Excellence” throughout the Milford School District.
