Assistant superintendent Steven B. Bliss has been promoted to superintendent of the Dover, Sherborn, and Dover-Sherborn Regional School Districts, and will take over from retiring Superintendent Valerie G. Spriggs, effective in the 2013-2014 school year. Spriggs took over the system in 2008, and Bliss was hired the following year in a partnership that has resulted in the district’s schools “consistently being ranked among the top in the state and nationwide,” according to a press release from the regional school committee. Bliss’s experience as a principal, assistant principal, director of finance/operations, and teacher was cited by the committees, which also said the appointment will provide a smooth transition and “optimum stability for our complex, multi-town school system.” Spriggs will continue as a consultant next year to support the transition.
