HOMEWOOD — New Jefferson County Schools Superintendent Craig Pouncey said that the first day of school last week was an “outstanding day.”
“We had a great start,” Pouncey said at last week’s Jefferson County Board of Education meeting.
Pouncey thanked all faculty and staff for a job well done in getting the school year started.
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.
