Less then a month before Milford goes back to school, and the district is beginning a new direction. The local paper already has posted the changes to the school dress code, and the results of the DSTP that will focus more help towards those groups performing poorly. The new superintendent, Ms. Sharon Kanter, has hit the ground running with new ideas, and approaches to helping the district move beyond in these challenging times. I am getting to work with her closely as the board has allowed me to take on the job of board president this year. We both look forward to the 2009-2010 school year, and the new direction of the district.
