Christina Superintendent to depart at end of school year

Delaware Public Media

The Christina School District will see new leadership next school year. 

The Superintendent of the Christina School District announced he will leave his position at the end of the school year. 

Richard Gregg took the post in 2017— following more than a year of interim leadership after the previous superintendent’s departure in 2015. 

Gregg said in a statement he plans to assist with the transition to a new superintendent. District officials say the school board learned of Gregg’s decision not to seek renewal of his contract in October. 

In a statement this week, Christina school board president Meredith Griffin thanked Gregg for his dedication to the District and his “many contributions.”

The District has undergone reorganization this year under an agreement with the state that aims to improve outcomes for students in the Wilmington portion of the district.

Christina also saw teacher cuts this year following a failed referendum. 

Christina is among several New Castle County school districts undergoing changes in leadership. This fall the superintendents of the Brandywine and Colonial School Districts both announced they are leaving in January.
