After nearly three years of searching for a candidate, Charlottesville City Schools have a new superintendent, who is preparing to move to town and start work on July 1st. Dr. Scottie Griffin, currently the superintendent of the New Orleans school system, will be moving from overseeing 20,000 students to just 4,000. She has been given a four-year contract, with a salary of $140,000. Griffin replaces interim superintendent Ron Hutchinson, who was hired for a two year stint after the process to replace outgoing superintendent Bill Symons was bungled. Julie Stavitski has the story in today’s Progress.
