Washington County Public Schools saves more than $840,000 in salaries

December 18, 2012

Washington County Public Schools recently saved $840,949 in salaries, largely due to a reorganization of administrative staff by Superintendent Clayton Wilcox within the past year, school system officials said.

The funding budgeted for the positions no longer filled through the reorganization is being shifted to pay for other things this fiscal year, Wilcox told the school board during its Dec. 11 meeting.

However, Wilcox said, he has not eliminated the possibility that the vacant position of director for curriculum and instruction could be filled in the future. Clyde Harrell held that position until his death in June.

In October, Wilcox said he was waiting until an associate superintendent and chief academic officer is hired to make a decision about filling the position of director for curriculum and instruction.

Wilcox said in October that he wanted the new associate superintendent to take on the other position’s duties as well, but he would wait and see if the new person needs the director for curriculum and instruction job filled.

The associate superintendent and chief academic officer position has been vacant since this past summer, when Donna Hanlin retired.
