When teachers and staff return to school there will be some new faces in the crowd. In fact, this year Middletown welcomes 100+ teachers and staff and four new administrators. Each of the hires was made to replace a pervious staff member; none of the positions are additional or new to the district’s bottom line.
“This is an exciting time for our schools and you can just feel the energy,” stated Sam Ison, superintendent. “We have some wonderful things happening for our students, like the construction projects but we also have some new employees and they are thrilled to be at Middletown.”
