Red Clay School Dist. narrows its search for new superintendent

Jan 28, 2019

The Red Clay Consolidated School District is moving forward in its search for a new superintendent.

The school board has settled on two finalists.


It held the first round of closed candidate interviews Monday night and will hold a second round next week.

The two candidates are Hugh Broomall— deputy superintendent of the Red Clay School District— and Dorrell Green— director of the Delaware Department of Education’s Office of Innovation and Improvement, and a former assistant superintendent in the Brandywine School District.

According to Red Clay officials, candidates were identified through a review of applications by University of Delaware’s Institute for Public Administration.

Finalists will give a public presentation on Feb. 11 at Cab Calloway School of the Arts. The board plans to select a superintendent on Feb.13.

Former Red Clay Superintendent Merv Daugherty left for another position in October. Chief Financial Officer Jill Floore has served as Interim Superintendent since then.
