Other job changes underway at ABSS Central Office

In addition to three previously-announced resignations in the Alamance-Burlington school system’s central office, several other position changes were listed as “information only items” on the latest personnel report that was presented to school board members Monday night (see related story HERE).

Those changes include:

  • Lajuana Norfleet will move from being the ABSS chief Student Services officer to an assistant principal position at a school yet to be determined;
  • Jeremy Martin, a former principal, will move from his current role as the director of School Administration for ABSS to an assistant principal’s position at Graham High School;
  • Amy Richardson’s current job title as chief academic officer for ABSS will change to executive director of Accountability and School Improvement (a position that Bost had previously held until it was changed in 2015 by then-superintendent Dr. Bill Harrison);
  • Revonda Johnson, currently chief secondary officer for ABSS, will serve as the interim chief academic officer.

Those four changes are scheduled to take effect July 1.

Meanwhile, three directors at the central office who report directly to the superintendent – ABSS deputy superintendent Dr. Angela Bost, chief finance officer Jeremy Teetor, and public information officer Jenny Faulkner – had previously announced their resignations, based on personnel reports that the board approved within the last few weeks.  Their resignations are scheduled to take effect June 30.

Previous ABSS superintendents, including Butler’s immediate predecessor, Dr. Bruce Benson, who took a medical leave of absence in October 2021 prior to retiring on January 1, also twice shuffled job titles and assignments at the central office.

The contracts for two other cabinet-level employees who are based at the central office – Dr. Todd Thorpe, assistant superintendent of operations, and Dr. Keisha Banks, chief special education officer for ABSS – have been renewed for additional one-year terms, based on the semi-monthly personnel reports that school board members have approved.  Thorpe’s contract is currently scheduled to run through June 30, 2023; Banks’ contract runs through June 30, 2024.
