Brandywine School District appoints new superintendent amid coronavirus closure

Brandywine School District

The Brandywine School District has a new superintendent. 

The school board voted unanimously this week to appoint interim  superintendent Lincoln Hohler to the post.

Hohler has worked for the district for close to three decades, most recently as assistant superintendent. He has served as interim superintendent for the past two months. 

He replaces Mark Holodick, who left for a job at the University of Delaware at the end of January. 

Brandywine School Board President Ralph Ackerman said in a statement Thursday that judging by his handling of the current COVID-19 crisis, he is confident Hohler will be a “great superintendent.”

Brandywine schools, along with all other public schools in Delaware, closed March 16 under the Governor's coronavirus State of Emergency. Teachers are trying to continue delivering content to students virtually.
