DALEVILLE, Ala (WDHN)— On Wednesday, February 2, the Daleville City School board unanimously voted to name Joshua Robertson as their new superintendent.

During their monthly meeting, the Daleville City School Board was supposed to announce who they were interviewing for the position but instead made the unanimous decision to promote Robertson.

Robertson says this is an extremely overwhelming feeling and the main goal for his time as superintendent is to make sure everyone else’s job in the school system is easier, and that he puts the right people in the right places to properly serve the students.

In November 2022, Robertson was named interim superintendent after Dr. Lisa Stamps, his predecessor, announced her resignation. Dr. Stamps left Daleville City Schools to start in her new position as the state Director of Leadership with the Alabama Association of School Boards.

With 22 years in education, Robertson, a Daleville High Alumni, has served in a number of roles within Daleville City Schools including high school chemistry and physics teacher, transportation director, assistant principal, and principal of Daleville High. He has also coached football, basketball, and golf.
