The Superintendent’s Office serves as the primary connection between the elected 10-member Board of Education and the entire Milford Public Schools organization.
Dr. Elizabeth Feser, our Superintendent of Schools, is the liaison between these two sectors. She oversees all day-to-day operational activity, instructional programming, and staff management and communicates with the Board frequently to keep everyone informed of all district activity.
In addition, she frequently works with our city officials on a variety of issues and is an eager partner in the many community activities conducted in Milford.

Prior to being a Superintendent, Dr. Feser served as the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction in the New Canaan, CT Public Schools, and as Principal of Danbury High School in Danbury CT. She held leadership positions in both Massachusetts and New York before coming to CT, and her teaching career began in Lowell, MA.
Dr. Feser holds a Bachelor’s degree from St. Xavier College (Chicago) and Master’s degree from Boston College. She earned a second Master’s and her Doctorate in Educational Administration from Teachers College, Columbia University.
