Waynesville looking for a new school Superintendent

Waynesville’s Superintendent of Schools for more than seven years has announced his intention to retire next June. Dr. Brian Henry on Tuesday announced his retirement at the end of the current school year. The Board of Education accepted Henry’s resignation during Monday night’s closed session. Since Henry’s arrival here, the district has posted its highest Annual Performance Report scores, which he credits to the staff and community support the district receives.

When the threat of losing 8.5-million dollars in B-2 Heavily Impacted Aid, Henry championed the need for a 20-cent tax levy increase, which voters overwhelmingly passed in April 2017.
The middle school academic wing opened in 2018 and the new front entrance opened earlier this year. Remodeling of the nearby Parker Fine Arts Center is underway so that the district can expand its pre-school offerings.
The Waynesville Board of Education will immediately begin a search for Dr. Henry’s replacement
