Jefferson County Board of Education Vice President Jacqueline Smith lauded Pouncey, saying that he had visited 42 of the school system’s 56 schools in about a week’s time. Board President Jennifer Parsons said school principals were appreciative of Pouncey visiting their schools.

The Jefferson County Board of Education next meets Tuesday, Aug. 19 at 9 a.m., when it could hire a new deputy superintendent for the system.
