“Having been an administrator at both elementary and secondary levels in several school districts, having worked in the central office, and having experience in large and small schools, I am looking forward to working with administrators across the state,” Dalton said.  “One of our first challenges will be in working collaboratively and creatively with middle and high school administrators to support the implementation the new high school graduation requirements.”
