Joseph Jones is the new Superintendent of the NCC Vo-Tech School District, succeeding Vicki Gehrt, who retired July 1 after eight years as chief of the county-wide school system. Dr. Jones has worked for the district since 2005, first as an assistant principal for Howard High School of Technology, then as principal at Delcastle Technical High School, and most recently as the district Director of Assessment and Accountability.

The NCC Vo-Tech School District has a combined enrollment of 4,700 students in grades nine through twelve, and serves more than 2,500 day and evening students in adult programs. The district has over 600 full-time employees, and ranks 11th in total enrollment out of Delaware’s 19 public school districts.

Did you know that 776 Seniors from Delcastle, Hodgson, Howard, and St. Georges were employed in more than 500 different Delaware companies and organizations this year as part of the district’s co-op job placement program?  That means 7 out of 10 vo-tech seniors are already gaining valuable work experience and making industry connections PRIOR to graduating from high school.  We celebrated the companies who create these opportunities at a recognition dinner held May 8 at St. Georges.  The evening featured speeches from four co-op students representing each school, Governor John Carney, and Secretary of Labor Cerron Cade.  Senator Chris Coons provided a video greeting.
