On 3-2 split vote, school board chooses Tim Parson as Chief

Posted June 12, 2019 at 8:18 am

Clinton County Schools will have a new superintendent effective July 1, 2019, and for the first time in several years, the person chosen to the lead the district is not a local individual.

On a split vote Monday evening, June 10, with all five board members present, they voted 3-2 to hire Tim Parson from Cumberland County, who is reportedly DPP (Director of Pupil Personnel) in that county’s school system.

The hiring of the superintendent, including setting the salary and term, was the only item of business, other than approving the board agenda.

There was no public comment period listed on the agenda since it was a special call meeting.
