Annaliese Spaziano, director of The Academy, has been appointed the new supervisor of student development for the Milford school district.

She will replace John Scalice, who left this summer to become a principal at an elementary school in another district.

“Annaliese will bring to the district as a whole and to her work with staff and programs in health, physical education, guidance and athletics the same high standards she has set forth as leader of The Academy,” School Supt. Dr. Elizabeth Feser wrote in announcing the appointment.

Spaziano has worked with many agencies in the community that serve Milford students.

School officials will look for an interim director of The Academy. Once that position is filled, Spaziano will step into the role of full-time supervisor of student development, school officials said.
