Butler was hired earlier this month. He is currently employed as a senior director for principal pipeline with Guilford County schools and previously served as superintendent of the Roanoke Rapids Graded School District in Halifax County from 2016 until 2021.
Butler is scheduled to begin work as the ABSS superintendent on July 1.
