Milford School District Superintendent Dr. Kevin Dickerson announced that he has accepted a position as the new superintendent at Polytech High School. Dr. Dickerson will leave Milford during the summer although the exact date has not been determined.

“I am very grateful for the years spent working in the Milford School District and serving the great communities of our district,” Dr. Dickerson said. “Furthermore, I am especially grateful to have had the opportunities to interact with so many wonderful students, staff, families, board members and community members.

“The current superintendent at Polytech announced her retirement in early March and is retiring, July 1,” Dr. Dickerson said. “I have an extensive background with career and technical student organizations, high school and adult program development and fostering business-industry partnerships for workforce development. Furthermore, I am proud of my lifetime full of experiences and connections throughout Kent County as I grew up and have lived in Kent County for almost my entire life.”

Having the opportunity to interact with so many amazing students throughout the schools and working with so many exceptional people within the schools, district and community are among Dr. Dickerson’s greatest achievements in Milford. His advice for the incoming superintendent is to cherish the opportunity as he believes Milford is a great place to work. He stated that the district has a supportive and caring staff and that the community supports the students and schools.
