New Daleville Superintendent is on the job

DALEVILLE, Ala. (WTVY) -- The Daleville City School Board held its first meeting with the new schools superintendent.

This is the first time Daleville has not had a superintendent who worked within the school system.

Dr. Lisa Stamps said she's ready to observe the schools and see what they need.

"We have several new positions that we're going to be filling so we are trying to get those positions filled so we can get ready for our students," Daleville Superintendent Dr. Lisa Stamps.

Dr. Stamps is ready to help Daleville students find a place in the school that best fits them.

"Every student should have a place to belong. I believe strongly that if we don't have a program for a student that we need to find a program," said Stamps.

Daleville High School Principal Joshua Robertson has spent 13-years serving as a teacher and principal in Daleville.

This is the first time he's going to be working with a superintendent coming from outside the school system.

"It's kind of exciting and it you know makes you nervous at the same time because you know there are going to be changes," said Robertson.

With a hire outside the school system, an unfamiliar face is a chance to bring new ideas.

"Often times you need something from the outside to maybe help make changes that you know you need to make," said Robertson

"Sometimes an outside set of eyes kind of has a fresh perspective on how to improve things," said Stamps.

The changes Dr. Stamps make will impact more than 1,100 students in the Daleville City School System.

Daleville City School students will return to classes on August 5th.
