GEORGETOWN, Del. – The Board of Education of the Sussex County Vocational Technical School District has appointed Dr. Kevin Carson as Acting Superintendent, following the recent resignation of Superintendent Stephen Guthrie.
Dr. Carson has several decades of experience in education administration, having served as Assistant Superintendent at Sussex County Vocational Technical School District, Interim Superintendent of the Seaford School District, and Superintendent of both the Cape Henlopen and Woodbridge School Districts. We’re told he is also a Senior Fellow with the University of Delaware’s Institute for Public Administration and is a member of the Sussex County Board of Adjustment.
Earlier this month, Superintendent Guthrie informed the Board that he would be stepping down effective July 31st for a family health matter. Guthrie said “it was a very difficult decision to make, especially since I have enjoyed my experiences here and the warm acceptance and support I received from all of our school community. I know the dedication and commitment of our staff and team will not waver or change, and our vocational technical school district will continue to serve Sussex County well.”
Dr. Carson will take over effective August 1st.
