CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. – The Jefferson County Board of Education voted to name Shawn L. Dilly as the Deputy Superintendent of Instructional Support for Jefferson County Schools.  Mr. Dilly was selected by a committee of professional and service personnel after undergoing an extensive vetting process.   Mr. Dilly is inheriting an innovative and high performing instructional program that flourished under the leadership of Mr. Pat Blanc.    
Jefferson County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Bondy Shay Gibson, said “When it comes to someone of Pat Blanc’s stature you can’t really use the word “replace”.   His more than 40 years of knowledge, relationship and dedication went into building this program.    I know Mr. Dilly will use his own wealth of knowledge acquired over many years in West Virginia to continue Jefferson’s success.”
Mr. Dilly’s career in West Virginia Public Schools began in 1998 when he took a position as an art teacher in Randolph County Schools. He has also held the administrative positions of Assistant Principal, Principal, Director, Assistant Superintendent and Superintendent in West Virginia.  His breadth of experience combined with his focus on supporting children’s social emotional development while maintaining a strong academic program was a key factor in his selection.  
Mr. Dilly said part of his job will be to make sure kids are prepared for the next step.
“Making sure that our kids are ready for what’s coming their way when they exit our doors at Jefferson County Schools,” he said. “Making them ready and equipped to handle that global economy that’s in front of them.”
Mr. Dilly also brings the educational background of a Bachelor of Arts in art education for k-12 from Fairmont State College, and a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction in secondary education from West Virginia University. He has completed all of the coursework for his PhD in leadership, policy and change in education and is working on his dissertation.
