Cape superintendent search going to the public

Interim Cape Superintendent Dr. David Robinson

The Cape Henlopen School District moved one step closer to finding a permanent school district superintendent at the Sept. 23 board meeting.

The school board approved a contract with the University of Delaware for the superintendent search. Interim Superintendent Dr. David Robinson has made it clear that he isn’t interested in becoming a permanent superintendent.

Robinson was hired earlier this year as an interim superintendent after Dr. George Stone left in the spring. Robinson is a Lewes resident and long-time Delaware educator who worked in the Caesar Rodney School District for a number of years.

While Robinson remains at the helm, the district has been working to develop a plan for the seach for a permanent replacement.

The search process will begin by going to the public for input about what the district needs in a superintendent, according to Board Member Dr. Roni Posner.

“It begins with input from the community,” she said. She said that there will be three community meetings planned for October as well as an online survey to get input from the public about what the district needs to look for in a superintendent.

There will be a meeting in each of Cape’s three communities, although no days or times have been set yet.  The board approved the contract from September, 2010 until April, 2011 by a 4-1 vote.
