Clackamas Education Service District Superintendent Milt Dennison to retire at end of school year
Milt Dennison announced his intention to step down as Superintendent of Clackamas Education Service District at the October meeting of the CESD Board of Directors on Oct. 21. Dennison joined CESD as superintendent in 2004 and will continue in the position until the end of the 2015-16 school year.
Dennison has overseen the relocation of the CESD headquarters and expansion of program and service offerings. He was actively involved in the development of the Gladstone Center for Children and Families, and the recent opening of a new facility for students with significant behavioral or social challenges at Heron Creek on the Clackamas River.
In 1975, Dennison was hired as an elementary school principal with the Dixon Unified School District in California. He moved to Oregon in 1980, where he served as a middle school principal with the West Linn School District for four years. He was promoted to Director of Curriculum and Instruction for the West Linn School District in 1984, and served in that capacity for two years. In 1986, Dennison was selected as superintendent of the Canby School District, and responded to significant growth in the school-age population there by overseeing the construction of Cecile Trost Elementary.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
