SCHOOL DISTRICT

The Beaufort County Board of Education today unanimously approved a five-year contract with Jeffrey Moss, the man it selected to lead the district.

Moss, currently superintendent of the 9,850-student Lee County Schools in Sanford, N.C., is scheduled to begin work on July 1.  Board Chairman Bill Evans said that Moss will make periodic trips to the district over the next few months to begin familiarizing himself with his new position and to provide input as the Board develops the district’s FY 2013-14 budget.

“The board believes that Dr. Moss is an excellent choice, and we’re looking forward to working with him,” Evans said.  “He has a track record of success in his two previous superintendent’s positions, and during our research we heard again and again about his ability to manage staff and resources so that students have the best possible chance of success.”

Ray and Associates, an Iowa-based firm hired by the board to coordinate the national search, received 122 applications from candidates in 42 states.  The consultants brought 11 candidates to the board, which interviewed seven before announcing three finalists.  Moss will have a base salary of $220,000.
