Delaware’s largest school district will get a new superintendent

The Christina School District Board of Education has chosen a longtime educator to become the next superintendent of Delaware’s largest school district.

Freeman Williams was chosen at Tuesday night’s board meeting.  Contract negotiations are underway, and Williams could be on the job July 1st.  Williams is currently the Christina School District assistant superintendent for administrative services, and has been a teacher and administrator in the area for more than 30 years.  Williams would replace Marcia Lyles, who announced in December that she would not seek a new contract as superintendent.
