Reno Superintendent Offered Top Job in Charlotte Schools
RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education in North Carolina says it's offering its superintendent post to Reno-area schools chief Heath Morrison.
Representatives from the Washoe County School District haven't said whether Morrison will accept the job, but are making an announcement about the matter later Thursday. The Charlotte-area district would also need to negotiate a contract and hold a vote next week to make the selection official.
Morrison was named the National Superintendent of the Year in 2012 by the American Association of School Administrators.
He began his career in Maryland, working in Charles and Montgomery counties as a teacher and administrator, before taking the Reno job in 2009.
Two other finalists for the job include Charlotte schools administrator Ann Clark and Memphis City Schools leader Kriner Cash.
