Yvette Santiago, President

New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District Board of Education

December 17, 2018

Victoria C. Gehrt, Superintendent of the New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District since 2011, has announced her plan to retire effective July 1, 2019, after 30 years of service to the school district and a total of 48 years as a Delaware and Pennsylvania educator.

The school district operates four comprehensive Career and Technical high schools in New Castle County – Delcastle Technical High School, Hodgson Vo-Tech High School, Howard High School of Technology, and St. Georges Technical High School, with a total enrollment of 4,700 students in grades 9 – 12. Additionally, the district also operates an adult and alternative education division serving approximately 2,000 students.

On behalf of the NCC Vo-Tech Board of Education, I first want to thank Dr. Gehrt for her leadership and years of service and I also want to thank you for your continued support of our Career and Technical Programs, our schools, and must importantly, our students. Your commitment helps to ensure that high quality and effective educational programs are provided for all students, and we could not do it without you.

In that spirit of partnership, the NCCVT school board is soliciting input as we begin the search for the next school district superintendent. The Board of Education would like to hear your ideas about skills and attributes you think are important as we review potential candidates for the superintendent’s position.
