Dr. Dalphine Joppy has been named as the new superintendent of Charles City County Public Schools.

Charles City School Board members made the announcement at Tuesday night’s regular school board meeting. She will assume the duties on July 1, replacing Dr. David Gaston who will be retiring.

Joppy has more than 20 years of experience in the educational field. Among positions held include teaching, staff development specialist, assistant principal, and principal. She has served as the director of professional and organization development at Chesapeake City Public Schools since 2013 prior to accepting the position in Charles City.

“I am honored to be selected as the next superintendent of Charles City County Public Schools,” said Joppy in a press release. “I am excited to have this opportunity to work collaboratively with the school board, staff, and the community in Charles City County.”

Joppy earned a Doctorate in Educational Administration and Policy Studies form George Washington University, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Norfolk State University, and a Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications from Norfolk State University.

“We welcome Dr. Joppy to Charles City County Public Schools,” said District 2 representative and school board chairman Rodney Tyler in a press release. “Her wealth of knowledge, experience, and leadership will be an asset to the division and community. We look forward to her leading our students in great success.”

The Virginia School Board Association (VSBA) assisted the school board with the superintendent search process.
