New Caesar Rodney Elementary School Named After Former Teacher

Posted: Updated:

AGNOLIA, Del.- The Caesar Rodney School Board voted Tuesday night to name the new elementary school on Briarbush Road in Magnolia after former teacher Dr. David E. Robinson.

At the Oct. 22 meeting, school board members voted 4-0, with one member not present. 

Dr. David Ernest Robinson worked for the Caesar Rodney School District for 34 years as a teacher, coach, assistant principal, principal and superintendent.

According to the district, "Robinson started with the Caesar Rodney School District in 1967 as a driver education teacher at the high school. In March of 1976, Robinson was hired as an assistant principal at Caesar Rodney High School, a position he held until August 1987, when he was appointed principal of Caesar Rodney High School. In 1998, he was selected by the Board of Education to assume the position of superintendent. Robinson retired from the Caesar Rodney School District in 2004."

The David E. Robinson Elementary School is set to open in 2020 and will serve 600 students in grades 1 to 5.

The $26 million project was part of the 2016 capital referendum. It is the first new elementary school in the district since Nellie H. Stokes Elementary opened in 2004.
