Dear Milford Community,

Please join the Board of Education in welcoming our new superintendent, Kristen Shearer. Ms. Shearer will be appointed at a special Board meeting on Tuesday, May 3rd.

After an exhaustive search that included input from stakeholder groups, the Board decided that Ms. Shearer possessed the skills, experience, and commitment that Milford needs as we head into our next chapter. Ms. Shearer grew up in the region and spent her career serving in rural, suburban, and urban settings. Her work has focused on school counseling, developing systems of support for students, and the development of social-emotional learning infused curricula. Ms. Shearer currently serves as the Director of Special Education and Pupil Services at Delaware Academy (Delhi). We know that Ms. Shearer will bring her experience and enthusiasm to Milford as we work together to create the best possible conditions for our students.

Our district has been through a time of tremendous transition. Change is always hard. We ask for the support of our school community to work collaboratively to move Milford into our next chapter. We know that Ms. Shearer is the right leader for Milford and we ask our community to remember that our students are the top priority. Together we can make sure that Milford students have the resources and support they need to thrive. We are excited to see what lies ahead for Milford's next chapter.

On behalf of the Milford Board of Education, thank you for your engagement and support during the superintendent search process. We know that our community will make Ms. Shearer feel at home as she starts her work on July 1st. We are stronger when we work together.
