MIDDLETOWN – After nearly 35 years with the Enlarged City School District of Middletown, Superintendent Richard Del Moro will retire. 

Del Moro announced his retirement — which will take effect on Oct. 7 — during a Sept. 2 board of education meeting. 

Del Moro said at the meeting that he’d been “talking about this over the past week or so.”

“And so, it is with a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for 34 years with this school district and a total of 46 in public education.”

Middletown School District superintendent Richard DelMoro speaks after announcing his retirement during the school board meeting at Presidential Park Elementary School on Thursday.

He went on to reflect on his years in the district: “When I walked into the school district in 1987, I came as a young man filled with joy and hope that I had this appointment, and each of the days that I’ve been in this school district, although some days may be overwhelming, I have a sense of gratitude for being able to serve this community in various capacities.”
