A superintendent with two-and-a-half years of experience running school districts was named the new leader of Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools, and officials hope he’ll stay longer than a few years.
The board unanimously approved hiring Tim Edsell as superintendent of the southern Johnson County school district. Edsell is now interim superintendent of Anderson Community Schools and was the superintendent for Northeastern Wayne schools from January 2012 to September 2013. He also worked as assistant superintendent of Northeastern Wayne schools from July to December 2011.
Starting July 1, he will become the leader of Indian Creek schools, overseeing more than 100 teachers and making decisions on policies, budgets and projects that will impact more than 1,800 students.
