Morrison To Name Chief Of Staff, Other Top CMS Posts Today

Aug 24, 2012

We'll have a better idea today about who will shape the future of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. CMS Superintendent Heath Morrison is expected to name his cabinet this afternoon at a specially-called school board meeting. People with different titles will surround Morrison. For example, Morrison will name a chief of staff. Previous superintendent Peter Gorman did not have a chief of staff. Morrison will also name a deputy superintendent, a position that Gorman axed because of budget cuts. Finally, Morrison is expected to announce a chief operating officer and a chief accountability officer, a position that's in charge of testing. Both of these jobs have been vacant for about a year.
